The phrase “We all scream for ice cream” isn’t restricted to just our species.

Tito, Kirsten Dunst‘s adopted feline, is quite vocal about his love for the creamy treat.

The Beguiled actress told PEOPLE that she discovered Tito’s deep devotion to ice cream with her fiancé Jesse Plemons.

“He was finishing the last of a pint and he gave him a little bit and he ate it and now if anyone has ice cream or he thinks it’s ice cream he’s like ‘Helloo, give me some!’ It’s funny,” she said. “He’s a cute kitty and he’s kind of a dog cat, which I appreciate. Very talkative.”

The former street cat chatted his way into the star’s heart three years ago, when he started showing up at her front door looking for delicious handouts like the ice cream he enjoys now.

Tito is a street cat that became my cat, he just was in the neighborhood. He started coming around my house and I started feeding him and he became my cat,” Dunst said.
