When it comes to naming your cat, sometimes cat owners come up with some interesting names that are sure to grab the attention of others. And this is especially true when shelters give cats famous names—like one cat coined Dennis Quaid that was luckily adopted by the real life Dennis Quaid!
Sophia Loren and Angelina Jolie are two very famous females, and as it turns out, they happen to be the names of two very lovely felines, too. I caught up with their humble servant, Claudia, and she shared with me the story of her two special rescue cats who are as purrfect as their fun names.
Everyone, meet the feline versions of Sophia Loren and Angelina Jolie. Sophia is the kitty with the stunning baby blues, and Angelina wears the perfect mustache.

Here is the tale of two gorgeous, yet very different felines named Sophia Loren and Angelina Jolie. My darling Sophia Loren came into my life as a gorgeous, mischievous 8 week old kitten along with her brother, George Clooney. Five years later, as if decided by faith, I fell in love with Angelina Jolie at the Petco window in the fall of 2016. After a 30 plus day of waiting to adopt her, Angelina Jolie was mine! Yes, 30 days because of a ringworm exposure, Angelina Jolie endured 4 weeks of lime baths, medication and quarantine but she’s a survivor. Angelina Jolie joined our household, George Clooney and Angelina Jolie were besties, Sophia Loren remained a cool Diva, yet, we are a happy trio.
But then tragedy struck when my George Clooney suddenly developed breathing difficulties on New Year’s Eve 2016. Less than 48 later, I had to put him to sleep. Heartbreaking! So now it’s just us girls, two divas and a mortal human. Now why these famous names, well, simply stated, I LOVE HOLLYWOOD! Movies stars fascinate me and so, why not live with the stars!
The names are so fitting because they do have BIG personalities and expect only the best when it comes to food, cat toys, water fountains, treats and yes, love. They love to play cat and mouse! Can you guess who the mouse is? Well, it’s interchangeable, whoever is in the mood, plays the role! After all, these are two very famous actors! Both Angelina Jolie and Sophia Loren are very special yet I can see upfront the difference when one brings home a kitten versus an adult rescue. Oh my, what a difference it is!
Kittens are amazing and wonderful and I have always adopted all my cats from kittens. It was always a friend whose cat had a litter, as this is the case (a coworker) so I always had my cats from babyhood and they are loving and perfect! But my Angelina Jolie, I just fell in love with her face, staring back at me in that small cage and when I found out that her previous owners just left her out with the trash when they moved to another place, it broke my heart to pieces.
I brought Angelina Jolie home, and she had so much gratitude. Her “thank you for picking me from the bunch” attitude, nonstop head bumps, non stop licks, love bites just sealed the deal! Angelina Jolie is just so thankful! Sophia Loren is more like “OK, you forgot to clean my dish”. It’s just very interesting to live with these two very different personalities but it is the best of both worlds! I will never forget walking thru my front door with an empty cat carrier, just having returned from the vet, my George Clooney forever asleep, and I just sat down next to this empty cat carrier and cried and cried and cried. My Angelina Jolie comes over and forces herself onto my lap and starts to lick my face! Sophia Loren is watching from a respectable distance. I am enveloped in love! These two love differently but love they do! I feel so blessed to be living a life of contrasts with these two but what a great life it is!!!
I’d like to give a special “thank you” to Claudia for allowing me to share her cats’ story with all of the Cattitude Daily readers. If you know someone else who would enjoy learning about these two lovely kitties with clever names, don’t forget to share!
