It’s no secret that James Franco is a cat man, but did you know his love for farm animals also runs deep?

In this exclusive video he filmed for the Farm Sanctuary, the actor talks about how he believes farm animals deserve the same respect as dogs and cats, and he applauds the hard work of the organization, which is dedicated to protecting farm animals from cruelty.

“I can’t help but compare farm animals to my cats,” he says in the video. “You look into their eyes and realize that they are someone, and not just something.”

Franco describes a kiss from a cow as something quite moo-ving.

“When cows come up to you and lick you like a cat with a huge tongue, it’s incredible,” he says. “And that’s why I support farm sanctuary’s work.”
