Does Henry Cavill Have Any Pets?


Dog: Akita | Adopted 2011

Henry Cavill has one dog called Kale-El or Kal for short. This Akita is named after Superman’s birth name back on his home planet of Krypton. Cavill also uses the hashtag #TheTravelingBear when posting about him on Instagram, because he travels with him everywhere he goes. He adopted her with Gina Carano when they were together in 2014.

In December 2022, Kal made headlines for appearing in the next-gen update of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt video game. Cavill played the lead role in The Witcher Netflix series, which is based on the game. Kal was known to be on The Witcher set every day that Cavil was filming. The Witcher game developers wanted to pay a tribute to both Cavill and Kal, by including this very good boy in the video game’s update.
