His bio on the Lynchburg Humane Society’s web page claims: “I may perhaps not dwell up to my dramatic and creative actor namesake, I’d instead check out his flicks with you curled up on the couch! Would you like to motion picture marathon with me? Come satisfy me!”
The human Quaid, who happens to host a pet podcast named “The Pet Show,” heard about the cat and understood he had to get treatment of the animal. Nonetheless, when Quaid’s co-host Jimmy Jellinek contacted the shelter, they did not promptly imagine it was truly Quaid who required the cat.
