Check It Out Meow: Bravolebrity Cat Lover Round Up

Take it from us, a cat round up is much easier than herding cats.

By Stacy Lenz

We can admit that we are sometimes a little dog-centric.  From Archie and Elvis, Unleashed is littered with dogs. While we love our canine content, cats have kneaded their way into our hearts and we aren’t the only ones that feel it— there are plenty of Bravolebrity cat lovers.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Bravo Sundays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app

While cats don’t feature as prominently as dogs in our favorite Bravo reality shows, there’s never been a cat wedding*, cat funeral or World Cat Day, maybe this is a call to action for some change. We demand to see at least one cat glittery cat food launch and maybe even a cat fashion show. Sure, we don’t know how that will work, but that is not for us to figure out. We humbly suggest that Craig Conover is the right man for the job with his sewing prowess and status as a doting cat dad (at least for a while). As we eagerly await the chance to see who yells at who over a better seat the launch of Craig’s Cat Clothes ™, in the meantime we’ll hit the paws button on our endless puppy parade and take a moment to celebrate some of Bravo’s cat ladies and gentlemen.

Craig Conover and Naomie Olindo

Southern Charm former flames Craig Conover and Naomie Olindo co-parented cats Colonel Gizmo and Z together when they shared a home. While Naomi won kitty custody in the split, Craig’s bond for the cats remained strong as he has visited them and still lurks them on Instagram.

Carole Radziwill

Baby, baby, baby ohhhh. We are not only quoting an old Justin Beiber song, but also listing The Real Housewives of New York’s Carole Radziwill’s pets. Though one of the Baby-s is a dog, the other two felines make Carole a bona fide cat lady. Baby Belle and Baby Blue may claw her vintage couch and hang from her curtains, but they serve such amazing face we get why she loves them!

These two serving face. #vogueing #lovebugs #kiddies😻😻

Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi

Shahs of Sunset's Golnesa Gharachedaghi is known not only for her attitude (which is the polite way to say “threatening people with knives”) but also for her cattitude. GG is BFFs with her rare Savannah F2 cat Malaika. Malaika’s personality is as complex as her human mom’s, she loves water and can sit like a human.

Reza Farahan and Adam Neely

The Shah’s of Sunset cast really loves cats. Reza Farahan and husband Adam Neely are practicing being parents by being cat dads first. After losing their beloved cat Buzzy, Reza and Adam welcomed a black and white Persian cat named Woody into their family to keep their surviving cat, Miss Moo, company. Adding to the Shah’s reps as cat lovers, it was none other than Mike Shouhed that gifted them the new furry bundle of joy.

So in love with Woody! He literally falls asleep around my neck!

Jeff Lewis

Jeff Lewis is an OG cat lover. We’ve watched his devotion to his pets unfold for years on Flipping Out — we cried when his beloved cat Monkey died, we sobbed when his other beloved cat Stewie died. Luckily, the time for tissues is over and Jeff and husband Gage Edward are current cat parents to Patrick and Carver.

Sh*t's getting real.

Dina Manzo

*Ok, you caught us, Bravo once featured a half-cat wedding where The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Dina Manzo’s legendary cat, Grandma Wrinkles married Lisa Vanderpump’s equally legendary dog Giggy. While we are still advocated a full cat wedding, we want to give proper due to trailerblazer Grandma Wrinkles. Human mom Dina is a lover of all animals, but her cats Grandma Wrinkles and Lil Mama hold a rightfully special place in her heart.

Yesterday was LIFE CHANGING for me and my little household! 🙌You guys know how much my animals mean to me. The fact that my cats had to be in a separate part of the house from the dogs since my bullies attacked Grandma Wrinkles 2yrs ago broke my heart. 😿(Don't worry that old bitty won the fight) Now look at them just chillin together! 🙏 ( see more in my story) Thank you a MILLION TIMES to Steve from @packleaderdogs who flew in all the way from Hoboken NJ ( ok maybe he was here working with @cesarsway and carved out time for me 🤗) for making this possible. In under 3 hours my "lunatic" bully G and his new copy cat sister lil mama broke all of their bad habits. I admit it, it was mostly my bad habits (like most of us) because we "feel bad" to set real boundaries and thought yelling "cut it out!" was the answer. I learned how important it is to be the pack leader and to be mindful of MY energy with them. Doing this immediately took the stress out of chaotic times like when I first come home and they lose their shit and jump all over me ( & guests 😬). When they drag my ass all over Malibu to get belly rubs from the person across the street. Feeding time frenzy, G's aggressive obsession with tennis balls and when their million bully kisses turns into pulling my ponytail out and suffocating me! 🙊 I couldn't believe the transformation in such a short period of time!!This could be dangerous because now that they are so calm I'm already thinking "what's one more?" 😜 But seriously peeps the method we were taught is simple, not mean or cruel at all and is actually so good for them. Take a look at their page. They rehab so many "aggressive" dogs into obedient lovers. 💕 Give @packleaderdogs a call and see how they can help you get even more enjoyment out of your fuzzy friends ❤️🐾 #bestdayever #dogtraining #bulliesofinstagram #ceasarmilan #stillgetthemillionkisses #lessthebruises

Lydia McLaughlin

You might mistake The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Lydia McLaughlin’s favorite animal for unicorns due to her glitter and rainbow infused personality, but it may actually be cats! Lydia has a white, fluffy kitty named Princess Diana. Of course she does!

Carlton Gebbia

And how can we talk about cat lovers without mentioning the reigning real housewives witch, Carlton Gebbia!? Of course she had a black cat named Midnight! While on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Carlton even got Midnight acupuncture. Though Midnight is no longer with us (RIP), Carlton has other “feline familiars” like cat Griffin.

Morning sunshine 🌟
