Does Kate McKinnon's Have Any Pets?

Nino Positano


Kate McKinnon has one pet cat called Nino Positano, named after the pizza restaurant he was found at. Nino has appeared in a few Saturday Night Live sketches with McKinnon. When Jimmy Fallon asked McKinnon about leaving SNL and its busy work schedule, she did an impression of her cat’s reaction to her suddenly being home all the time, saying “My cat has been like, oh now you’re home, after a decade of you being gone, out all hours! Now you’re home!” Fine, well I am already asleep.”

Kate McKinnon's pet Willy



When Kate McKinnon was growing up, she had a pet iguana named Willy. She told Oprah when interviewed for O Magazine that “We had a very contentious relationship. It turns out that iguanas are not meant to live in suburban homes. Willy was constantly stressed out, he pooped everywhere, he developed eating problems—it was a mess.”
