What’s a guy with 53,000 Twitter fans to do when his really senior cat gets to be too much? If you’re Chris Pratt, you leverage that social media clout to find her a new home.

The comic actor, starring on small screens in Parks & Recreation and on big ones in Moneyball, shares a “19-or-so”-year-old cat with wife Anna Faris. The feline, Mrs. White, had once enjoyed a show business career herself, starring in Stuart Little as Snowbell, and after she grew old and retired, Faris adopted her.

Now it seems Mrs. White needs a new place to call home. “Anyone in the LA area want a cat?” Pratt wrote Monday on Twitter. “Full disclosure, she’s old and prone to accidents. So sweet though.” PHOTOS: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone and a Dog!

In the next hour, Pratt had already gotten offers from his followers. “Really?” he replied. “She is very sweet and needs a good home. We have pugs and she’s too old to deal. She needs one on one attention.”

While his method might be unorthodox, Pratt conveyed a genuine affection for old Mrs. White. Then, as the rest of the world reacted to Amanda Knox’s appeal verdict, Pratt joined with a joke. “#amandaknox so happy for you and your family!!! Want a cat?”
