Jesse Eisenberg Finds Abandoned Kittens During Visit to China, Finds Them All Homes

In what may sound as a remarkable effort, Hollywood actor Jesse Eisenberg manages to find kindhearted people who are willing to adopt three abandoned kittens after his video goes viral on Chinese social media.

Eisenberg, who is in the country for the Shanghai International Film Festival, found three abandoned kittens inside a box on the streets. Being a good guy that he is, the 34-year-old actor recorded a video asking for people’s help by finding the three adorable cats a new home, according to Shanghaiist.

I found these three beautiful cats on the street,” the actor said. “If you are interested in adopting them, they are really lovely, they look like my personal cat in New York, please contact us. If you’re interested in adopting them please pick them in eight days from now, when they’ll be fully healthy and ready to go.”

The clip, which was posted on Weibo by a fan at around 6:35 p.m. on Saturday evening, received quite the attention online. It was said in the report that the video has been viewed more than 2.4 million times.

Unsurprisingly, five minutes after it became online, the user announced that the kittens have already been adopted.

Eisenberg, who used to volunteer as a foster parent to several cats, now has a few of his own, and his relationship with them is somewhat complicated, judging by what he described in his interview with Magic’s Green Room back in July 2016.
