Does Jesse Eisenberg Have Any Pets?

Jesse Eisenberg is a proud cat dad and currently has one or two cats. He has said he fosters rescue cats and told Conan O'Brian in 2011, "I have two [cats] now, but I’m on a list where they can deliver them to the house. To be a foster parent for cats is basically to have tenants coming in and out. I have a lot of cats, a lot of cat food, a lot of litter—and nothing else in the apartment." Also after returning to the voice a macaw in the film "Rio 2" in 2012, he asked the public to reconsider buying exotic birds due to so many being surrendered to bird rescue groups.

Mr. Trunkles


Cat daddy Jesse Eisenberg and one of his cats named Mr. Trunkles appeared in a video for the New Yorker Festival in 2014. The festival hosted a debate on if dogs or cats are superior. Obviously on “Team Cats”, Eisenberg couldn’t attend so he made this video, where he claimed he couldn’t be there in person because he was on vacation in Hawaii with Mr. Trunkles.

In the video, Eisenberg said, “I’ve always just had cats as companions, which is what Mr. Trunkles is. He is my cat companion. He’s so great. And he’s also my best friend. I know. I know, it’s totally corny to say that, my cat’s my best friend. But in my case I think it’s actually true, you know.”
