James Franco loves cats.
"I was raised as a cat person," he said. "I had cats when I was a kid and that’s what I’m used to. I don’t really know how to take care of a dog, but I think I’m pretty good with cats … All my recent cats have been named after characters from books or the literary world. Sammy’s named after Sammy Glick from What Makes Sammy Run, and Zelda is named after Zelda Fitzgerald. The two cats that my brother stole from me are Harry after Harry Angstrom from the Rabbit novels and Arturo is named after Arturo Bandini from the John Fante novels.” Well, I was with him until the last two names.
