You can love your pets, just don't loovvee your pets. Killer Joe actress Gina Gershon has a new book about her search for her cat Cleo 10 years ago, and you won't believe what lengths she went to in order to find her pet.
Gershon, 50, showed up on The Jeff Probst show on Tuesday and shared a peculiar story from her book, In Search of Cleo: How I Found My Pussy and Lost My Mind. The actress admitted that she went to a psychic, per Ellen DeGeneres' suggestion, and was told to put herself in the position of the cat. In the book, she says she crawled backwards through West Hollywood and even sprinkled her scent around the house in the form of urine.
Gershon and Probst agreed that this tactic sounded sane when put in the position of the animal, and the actress-turned-author confessed that she "dribbled" her pee around in hopes that her cat would catch a whiff and return home.
She must have done something right, because her cat did return to her, but there's no telling if the trail of urine was what did it.
