Royal Canin Enlists Kat Dennings For ‘Take Your Cat to the Vet Day’
Media Philanthropy Press Articles

Royal Canin has enlisted actress Kat Dennings and kitten rescuer Hannah Shaw to urge cat owners to take their cat to the veterinarian every year ahead of National Take Your Cat to the Vet Day.

According to a Royal Canin survey, 63% of cat owners incorrectly believe that if their cat is acting “normal” (including playing, eating, drinking, using the litter box,) they don’t need to go to the vet. Pet owners don’t take their cats to the vet until they are in distress – which is a huge problem. 

Aug. 22 is National Take Your Cat to the Vet Day and Royal Canin is asking pet owners to pledge to visit the vet for an annual well visit to catch issues when they first start. Cat owners can visit www.royalcanin.com/cathealth to sign the pledge.

Dennings and Shaw (better known as the Kitten Lady) and veterinarian and reality television star Dr. Diarra Blue, teamed up to create a PSA which is running on Royal Canin’s social media accounts. Dennings will also post them to her account, per a spokesperson. B Live produced the PSA and Royal Canin is doing social in-house.

While more than forty-two million U.S. households have at least one cat, totaling more than 90 million cats, few of these cats are receiving proper medical care. In fact, more than half of all cats don’t receive veterinary care on a regular basis – 83% of cats visit the veterinarian before their first birthday, but over 50% don’t return until they become sick or are in pain, according to the pet food manufacturer.

Now in its sixth year, Royal Canin’s annual Take Your Cat to the Vet initiative works to raise awareness about this important issue and help break down the barriers that prevent cats from going to a vet more often. 

Sixty-six percent of survey respondents also agree that when their cat is acting healthy, they don’t pay attention to the signs of aging, but 60% are not sure what signs to look for when their cat is aging.

Slightly more than half (52%) don’t start paying attention to preventative health care measures for their cat until they hit a certain age. Even more startling, 83% of cat owners believe “age doesn’t define my cat” and 73% think their cat acts younger than they truly are.

Cats are “private” animals, so it can be difficult to tell when they’re not feeling well, says Dr. Catherine Lenox, board certified veterinary nutritionist and regulatory veterinary manager at Royal Canin North America. 

“While each annual appointment may look similar, your veterinarian is monitoring for different health concerns depending on your cat’s life stage,” Lenox says in a release.

In addition, as part of the initiative, Royal Canin is partnering with Shaw’s Orphan Kitten Club’s Mightycat grant program – the world’s first grant program targeted to saving neonatal kittens. 

Every kitten season — which corresponds to warm weather months in most regions — thousands of motherless kittens are at risk of death on the streets and in animal shelters. Without a mother to care for them, kittens face impossible odds and can’t survive without specialized care. 

The Orphan Kitten Club is dedicated to saving the lives of these tiny felines by rescuing them in its state-of-the-art kitten nursery, ending the cycle through sterilization, and providing care for every kitten possible.

What Actress Kat Dennings Can’t Live Without
Media Press Articles

If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair but the hairspray and the electric toothbrush. We asked actress Kat Dennings — a star of WandaVision, which is now streaming on Disney+ — about the eyeliner, vegetable knife, and vinyl record she can’t live without.


Thayers Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel Facial Toner with Rose Petal – $11

I got my first bottle of this toner at the drugstore when I was about 13. I remember seeing something on the back of the bottle that said the lady who invented it always looked ten years younger than her age — such a big claim! I remember thinking, What is it going to do, make me look 3? But it’s a really good toner and not expensive. My skin is really delicate and this has never failed me. I also have an intense scent memory around it, like it’s kind of a mood-booster for me at this point. It’s very refreshing and the scent of it is just so delicious that I’ve basically been hooked for my whole life.


Pat McGrath Labs Liquid Eyeliner – $32

Black eyeliner has kind of become my thing, for better or for worse. I feel like I don’t look like myself without it — it makes my face feel like my face. One of my closest friends, Brenda Song, is also a big makeup lover and she turned me on to this liner. It is the deepest black of all my black liners. Pat McGrath is a legend and I’ll give her all my money. Because of the price point, it’s more of a special-occasion liner. It’s incredibly smooth, with a felt tip, which is what I prefer. I don’t love brush-tip liners, I like the precision of a felt tip. To anyone who wants to try it, I would say to keep your eye open when you draw the liner on. I know it sounds weird, I know it sounds crazy, but closing your eye kind of warps the shape. You can draw a beautiful, smooth line and then, when you open your eye, it’s all totally different.


Knitter’s Pride Zing Deluxe Interchangeable Needles Set – $75

I’m a big knitter and circular needles are my favorite because you can put your knitting down before you’re finished without worrying that your stitches are going to fall off. That’s a big concern with regular needles because you can lose a whole row if you put them down in a hurry. I avoided circular needles for a while until I saw my friend using them. I thought circular needles were just for knitting circular things, but you can make anything with these. The set comes with different size needles, too, including tiny ones you can make socks with. I don’t want to sound like a crazy knitting person, but truly, the sky’s the limit.


Acupressure Mat – $40

This thing is basically like a bed of nails. I have really legitimate back pain and I’ve tried a lot of different things to soothe it. This is the best. It is covered in these little plastic spikes that are really intense if you don’t wear a shirt, but you can work up to that. You’re not going to get hurt by it, but you do feel it. Eventually, you kind of go numb; then, when you sit up, the blood rushes to your back. I think there’s something to that because it really helps a lot with my back pain. If you’re on your feet a lot during the day, you can also try walking on the mat — it’s brutal, but feels great. Back when I was on set, I would bring it because I would be on my feet for like 17 hours a day.


The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – $7

This is the funniest book ever written. It’s my comfort book. I take it with me on trips because I just like knowing it’s there. It makes me so happy. There’s an audio version from the ’80s, I think, which is also incredible. My brother had it on cassette when we were little — that was my first exposure to it. It’s such an incredible piece of writing. I saw a little of the movie and then I stopped, not because it wasn’t good, but because the book is so precious to me that I didn’t want the movie to interfere with the version in my head, you know? It’s too important to me to even go there.


Peloton Bike – $1,895

I’ve never liked to exercise and I’m way too shy for group classes. Even before the pandemic, I really couldn’t bear the thought of being in a group class. The Peloton bike gives shy people the experience of being in a group class. It’s kind of perfect if you’re antisocial. My favorite instructor is Christine D’Ercole. She’s an absolute badass and a real competitive cyclist. You can also take these scenic rides that look like you’re biking through a forest of a French town. It’s the only exercise I’ve ever looked forward to and that’s saying a lot.


Kamikoto 7-inch Nakiri Vegetable Knife – $205

I have terrible knife karma. I’ve accidentally done so many bad things to myself with knives. But the blunt end on this knife means there’s one less way I can wound myself. It’s specifically for chopping vegetables; now that I garden a lot, I use mine constantly and it really does the job. I like the cleaver shape, there’s something very pleasing about it. Right now, my garden is less exciting than in the spring and summer, but I actually just started seeding tomatoes inside. That’s really what gets me going.


David Bowie ‘Peter & The Wolf’ 1978 – $80

This record is very precious to me. If you love David Bowie, which everybody should, it’s an incredible experience. For anyone who doesn’t know what this album is, it’s a story told with an orchestra. It’s very different from anything you would hear now. I don’t think this is really done anymore and it’s a cool thing to hear. As a kid, my mom really pushed me towards classical music, so I listened to this a lot. It’s otherworldly because of Bowie’s voice and his presence. I’m pretty sure it’s available on YouTube, so you can just listen to it for free. But if you can get your hands on a vinyl copy, you really should. The record is a transparent green color. I have a thing for clear records. They do something for my soul. So this is a real treasure of mine.


Catbird Tiniest Key Charm, Yellow Gold – $88

The only piece of jewelry I wear every day. Mine is engraved with a little meaningful thing. I love everything at Catbird. Delicate, unique jewelry is my favorite and they just have so many beautiful things. They are my go-to for gifts. I’ve never been to their boutiques but I have always wanted to go.


Phantom quartz tower – $50

Los Angeles really ruins crystals for people that have a genuine interest in them. People have just like douche-ified it here. I’ve been collecting crystals forever. Phantom quartz are just quartz crystals that grow with the shadow of another crystal inside them. The effect is so beautiful and there are all different kinds. I have one called a Tibetan black phantom quartz that’s clear with a black phantom in it. You can get gorgeous crystals on Etsy for not that much money. I travel with a piece of phantom quartz because I have a lot of anxiety around travel and there’s something about looking at a thing that’s maybe a million years old, you know, that makes me calm down. It makes me think, You know, you’re just a speck in this dumb universe. Plus, they’re just really pretty crystals to look at.

EVERYTHING IN WANDAVISION “HAS A PAYOFF” SAY STARS KAT DENNINGS AND RANDALL PARK
Media Press Articles

WandaVision is the most talked-about TV show of 2021 so far.


That is kind of to be expected, as the first Marvel Cinema Universe show on Disney+ was always going to be a big deal. But maybe what fans didn’t expect was for the show to be as strange as it is.

Instead of superhero battles and sci-fi action, for the first few episodes viewers instead got homages to the sitcoms of yesteryear, with an additonal sinister, unnerving edge.

The fourth episode finally pulled out into the wider MCU world, and gave us some clues as to what is going on. Returning characters Darcy Lewis (from the Thor movies) and Agent Jimmy Woo (first seen in Ant-Man and the Wasp) are now on the outside of Westview looking in, trying to figure out what is going on, just like the viewers at home.

We caught up with the Darcy and Jimmy – or more accurately Kat Dennings and Randall Park, the actors that play them – to talk about what they thought when they first discovered what the show was about.

“When I first got called in [by] Jac Schaeffer, the head writer, we sat in a conference room, and she had the whole show mapped out on the walls.” says Randall Park. “I was just so amazed.”

“‘I was like ‘What is going on?'” adds Kat Dennings. “This is the craziest thing I have ever seen.'”

“But seeing all of the work they put in to it, it all really makes sense,” she continued. “Everything you see has a payoff. There’s nothing put in purely by accident.”

“There’s a huge payoff that I think people will be really excited for.”

And based on what happens at the end of episode five, we are starting to see it all come together.

WandaVision is streaming exclusively now on Disney+

What to expect today on Ellen
Appearances Media Talk Shows

Ahead of its broadcast, ET Canada reveals what to expect from Kat’s participation on today’s episode of The Ellen Show.

The “WandaVision” actress spoke with Ellen DeGeneres for a segment on her show airing Monday, February 15, about her desire for an additional pet. Dennings explained she already has one “genius” cat, Millie, and wants another feline friend. However, Dennings worries that either Millie, 8, wouldn’t get along with the newbie or that the pair would form such a strong bond they would ignore her altogether. That line of thought led Kat to think that maybe she should adopt a rescue fox. Dennings also spoke to Ellen about a toaster mishap that arose out of a desperate desire for a warm cookie, and what it was like reprising the role of Darcy Lewis eight years after appearing in the first “Thor” movie.

The Canadian website also released a video segment titled “Did Kat Tweet That?” where Ellen has Kat play a guessing game of whether she did tweet that.

Never in my life have I approached a brand ASKING to partner with them out of sheer adoration. As a passionate (yet not remotely professional) gardener, I’ve become obsessed with only allowing REAL FRUIT (not “natural flavor” – actual fruit) into my consumables. Once I realized that everything I was drinking was “flavored”, I went on the hunt. I discovered @drinkspindrift which is the FIRST sparkling water made with 100% ONLY REAL SQUEEZED FRUIT and I became an absolute psycho, slowly converting my friends and family to the Drifter lifestyle. I may be part Spindrift at this point, as it is actually the only water I drink. Anyway. More to come. #realfruittastesbetter#spindriftpartner
