Another reason to love Ms. Monroe
CTO: @meowasfluff - Marilyn Monroe, who passed away on August 5, 1962, at the age of 36, owned nine pets during her short life. The iconic actress -- who absolutely adored animals -- had a total of eight dogs throughout her life but just one cat, Mitsou.
Mitsou, who lived with Monroe in New York in the 1950s, became pregnant. Shortly before Mitsou gave birth, Monroe called multiple veterinarians in search of assistance for the expectant mother. However, when she stated she was Marilyn Monroe and she needed help for her cat who was having kittens, the staff thought she was out of her mind and promptly hung up on her.
Thankfully, Monroe was able to assist Mitsou, and her beloved cat gave birth to four adorable white kittens.
