Quaid (the man), who additionally occurs to be a co-host of pet-themed podcast “The Pet Show,” advised 10 News that he could not resist adopting the six-year-old cat from the Lynchburg Humane Society.
“It was really off the wall but we couldn’t resist,” he stated, including: “I’m out to save all the Dennis Quaids of the world.”
Quaid and his group contacted the shelter to ask about adopting the cat — however at first the shelter could not fairly imagine what was taking place.
“I was like there is no way this is real, like, someone is pranking us,” Danielle Ulmer, adoption middle supervisor for the shelter, advised the information station.
Once the actor had satisfied shelter employees he was severe about the adoption, he “met” cat Dennis over Zoom. Jellinek plans to fly to Virginia over the weekend to gather the new member of the Quaid family.
Let’s hope Dennis Quaid the cat and Dennis Quaid the man hit it off.
