Ellie Goulding is a proud cat lady. The singer, 30, has two fabulous little felines, who she posts about often on Twitter and Instagram. Watch the latest video in our monthly “Pets — They’re Just Like Us” series to see some of her cutest moments with the animals!
Goulding introduced her cats Lennon and Wallace in 2015. On October 23 of that year, she tweeted two pics of the precious Bengal kitties, writing, “This is my cat Lennon x … and this is Wallace x.”
Since then, Lennon and Wallace have been a frequent presence on her social media accounts. In August of last year, she posted a photo of herself with Wallace, writing, “Chillin with my main man.” She also occasionally shares videos.
Earlier this year, in January, she revealed to a fan that she’d given Lennon to a friend because he “needed a big lovely family to look after him.” However, she recently debuted another kitty, Eve, who has already made several guest appearances on Instagram.
Goulding was a cat lady even before she got a cat, though. Back in 2013, Ellen DeGeneres noted that the “Love Me Like You Do” singer posted a lot of random cat pictures she found on the Internet.
“I’m obsessed now. I never thought I was gonna be one of those people who was gonna post photos of a lot of animals, and now I am. I’m Catwoman,” Goulding joked.
She also told Rolling Stone that year that posting photos of cats kept her from revealing too much on Twitter. “I’ve stopped being very outspoken on Twitter. It doesn’t help me, it doesn’t help my mind, and I don’t want to force my views on people,” she explained. “So I just post pictures of cats, that’s my thing — keeping it trivial, keeping it simple.”
