'Office' star Angela Kinsey does the best impressions of her pets

Angela Kinsey might be most known for playing cat-loving Angela Martin on “The Office,” and turns out, she is a pet lover in real life, too. At home, she has two cats (Snickers and Oreo) and two dogs (Biscuit and Buster). In this episode of “My Pet Tale,” she says she knew immediately that her rescue pets were part of her family.

Biscuit was in a cage with a bunch of animals that were part of a big rescue from an abusive situation and she was sort of sitting quietly in the corner, and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, come here! Come here! Come here!’” she said. “You just know right away.”

Kinsey said she talks to her pets all the time.“I talk to Oreo kinda cool like, ‘What’s up Oreo? How’s it going? I’m good, you don’t need to come over here. If you wanna come over here you can. What’s happening?’ And to Snickers, I’m like, ‘Hello Snickers!’”

She has partnered with Royal Canin for “Take Your Cat to The Vet Day” to raise awareness about the importance of preventive veterinary care for cats. She’s urging people to take their cats to the vet.

“Cats are more kind of, like, loners, right? They do a lot of self care. So a lot of times we don't know when they're not feeling well. And it's really important to bring your cat to the vet for a yearly checkup.”

Be realistic. Unrealistic goals will only prevent you from growing. There are two common mistakes a dog owner can make that will slam the brakes hard on any potential progress you might be hoping for. First, the expectations we place on our dogs and ourselves. The misguided belief that your dog “should” be performing or responding at a certain predetermined level. Another mistake many owners make is having unrealistic assumptions. Many of us assume that our dog understands what we want and that he knows what we’re asking of him. As if that wasn’t bad enough, some of us assume that the dogs failure to perform means he’s either rebelling, stubborn, or just plain stupid.

Kinsey wants all of her pets to have a long, healthy life.

“Pets make your life better because it’s just unconditional love,” she said. “I mean, you have to work a little harder with your cats, but I kinda respect that … And I think they just fill out your home.”
