Whoopi Goldberg of "The View" Adopts Rescue CatPublished August 25, 2011
Hollywood heroine and TV star of ABC's The View has shown she has a soft spot despite a sometimes tough demeanor. News broke yesterday that Whoopi Goldberg has become one of the many people that choose to adopt a cat each year.
The feline Goldberg fell for, a Russian Blue named Verrazano by those who found him (she's calling him Vinny), is a cat who comes from extraordinary circumstances. Back in July of this year, the cat survived a harrowing ordeal in which a still unknown person senselessly threw the cat out of the window of a moving car on the Verrazano Bridge (hence the cat's name).
After the incident, the cat was rescued by Animal Care & Control, and then got a chance to meet the media, appearing on ABC's The View. On the set, Goldberg fell for the feline, and afterwards applied as one of the 140 hopefuls that would be able to adopt the cat.
Yesterday, Animal Care & Control granted Whoopi's wish, and awarded the cat to Goldberg.
Isn't it nice to see this cat travel from bad circumstances into the lap of luxury?
