Does Glenn Howerton Have Any Pets?

Glenn Howerton has two rescue dogs and a cat.

Two Rescue Dogs (Dog)

Breed: Mixed Breed

Glenn Howerton has two rescue dogs. The White dog is named Riley and we couldn’t find the name of the black-and-tan pup. He grew up with cats and never had a dog, but his wife Jill Latiano convinced him to adopt a dog. And then adopt a second one 8 months later. And Howerton has said his wife is working on getting him to agree to a third rescue.

I grew up with cats. I’ve never had a dog in my entire life. And my wife talked me into it. And she talked me into one, and then she, a couple months later, talked me into getting a second one. Now she’s talking about a third. And I’m like, “Stop. Stop it. It’s too much”.

Ninja Bean (Cat)

Breed: Black | Adopted 2002

Glenn Howerton has a black cat named Bean, better known as Ninja Bean, but also referred to as Miss Bean Kitty Queen. Glenn got this cute kitty way back in 2002, with his wife saying on Instagram in 2021 that Bean was 19 years old!

When being interviewed by Seth Meyers, he was asked “What is the big difference, being a cat person all your life, and now entering the canine world?” and he replied,

Truth be told, I’ve done a complete and total 180. I used to — I used to like cats, because, I don’t know, I just thought it was kinda cool that cats were so standoffish and you had to kind of seduce a cat. You know, cat’s not just gonna come to you. You have to kind of like play games with the cat. I thought that was kinda sexy and fun. But with dogs — I mean, I always thought, with dogs, I’m like, “Too easy. It’s too easy.” They run up to you, they slobber all over you, lick you, jump on you. You know, like, “Get your dirty paws off me. You’re a little desperate.” You know what I mean?

Calico Cat (Cat)

Breed: Calico

A rare photo of Cat Daddy Glenn Howerton and one of his previous kitties. This photo was shared by his wife Jill Latiano on Instagram. Howerton is seen here with a pretty Calico cat and one of his newborns. Judging by the potato-quality photo, we’d guess this was taken in 2011 when their first son Miles was born. But it could be from 2014 when their second son Isley was born.
