Does Jay Leno Have Any Pets?

Cats and Garage Cats (Cat)


Jay Leno has had many cats throughout his life and he once even credited cats with being smarter than humans on The Ellen Show with Ellen Degeneres. Leno is a self proclaimed “cat guy” having had over 5 cats throughout the years and many we don’t know about. His car shop where Leno keeps his famous car collection has let in many “garage cats” over the years and his employees have been feeding and spaying them as they come in. A champion of cats, there’s no telling how many cats Leno has rescued in his time.
