Blind Items Revealed

May 6, 2009

This is not something terribly dramatic, but I just felt like posting a kindness today. This C list actress/writer/producer on a very hit television comedy had noticed all of these photos of a missing cat on telephone poles and in windows. She didn't really think much about it, but a day or two after she first saw the pictures, she met a little girl who was standing with her mom on the corner and they were putting up more pictures. So, our actress to be kind asked about the cat, and found it that it had been the girl's cat and that she had literally had it from almost the day she was born and she was now 8. The mother and daughter recognized our actress and they took some photos with a cell phone camera and our actress signed an autograph on one of the cat posters. The cat had managed to get outside when the front door had been left open by the cable guy.

Anyway, about a week goes by and our actress called the family to see if they had found the cat and they had not and had given up hope. The next day, our actress stopped by their house along with two other members of the show and dropped off a brand new kitten to the little girl.

Yeah! That was definitely a popular guess. I love her and The Office! Nice to know she is kind as well.

Nice - love the office, love Mindy! I have no idea, but I would guess Jenna Fisher and Angela Kinsley were the other two members since they are cat lovers too.

I love the Kindness ones!
I wish they were all kindness, but that's just not the world we live in.
Go Mindy!

I LOVE her, and i love her twitters. She is one funny gal, and apparently good hearted too!

Does the heart good.

I'd like to know who the other 2 were as well.

Mindy's cameo in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" was awesome, too.

She is so pretty and her delivery is hilarious!

What a doll! Love her writing and her Office character.

This is great that Mindy did this, (I too loved her cameo in 40 Year Old Virgin). I just hope they do find their cat again. I hate to think that it will never come home. (plus there's nothing wrong with having a cat and a kitten, at the same time, in the same house.. heck we have 7 cats here..)

BTW, I also guess that the two cast members who joined her were Angela Kinsey, (because she's the show's cat person), and Jenna Fischer, (because she's an admitted cat person in real life). There is a great article about Jenna and her cat, in the June 2009 Cat Fancy magazine, and one of the photos supporting the article was her.. dressed as a cat.. meow..
