Frankie, Felix, Heaven, Teddy, White Kitten (Main Coons)
Cleese has a collection of Maine coon cats, which are large long-haired cats originally from the state of Maine, known for their more “dog-like” personality. Francis is the most famous of Cleese’s Maine Coon cat pack. This ginger Maine coon has almost 3000 Twitter followers and once appeared with his human on the British T.V. show The Last Leg.
His other Maine Coons include Felix (all-black), Heaven (white/grey face) and Teddy (grey/black tiger). He also welcomed an all-white kitten to his family in April 2016, which he was trying to decide a name for on Twitter. No word on what name was chosen and we’re guessing it’s another Maine Coon.

White Kitten (Adopted April 2016)
Advice please-Would it be racist if we called him 'Whitey'?— John Cleese (@JohnCleese) April 30, 2016
Naming him 'a cat of minimal colour' is a bit cumbersome pic.twitter.com/ExWVXdkdpU
