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.”
