In the past few years, we have seen a lot of videos of Anthony Hopkin with his cat. His posts with his beloved cat consistently demonstrate how he and his wife were very attached to the cat.
Recently, the actor announced the death of his beloved pet cat by posting a loving tribute to the deceased on his social media accounts along with a picture of the cat. So Anthony Hopkins is going through a sorrowful time at the moment.
In A Tribute To His Cat, Hopkins Posted A Video On Instagram
The actor and director Anthony Hopkins posted a video on the Instagram account of his famed Instagram account on Sunday. It can be seen in this video that he enjoys playing the piano with his beloved cat as they play together.
Additionally, he added a heartwarming caption along with the video itself. “Our beloved Niblo, forever in our hearts. And The Waltz Goes On 2009-2022”.
When he was in isolation in 2020, a video of him playing the piano with his cat was shared on the internet and went viral. The actor gained worldwide attention when he shared an insight into his life as a self-isolated person. A pleasant melody is playing in the video, and Niblo seems to enjoy it.
Sir Anthony Hopkins and His Beloved Cat
It was not a pleasant surprise when a stray tabby cat was brought to the hotel where award-winning Welsh actor Sir Anthony Hopkins was staying while he was filming in Budapest, Hungary, hoping the animal would find a new owner while he was there.
Hopkins and his wife Stella were so enchanted by the cat that within just a few weeks, they ordered him a load of cat toys and decided that he should return to their home in California as soon as possible. So it was an affectionate Welsh term for a little boy that they gave him the name Niblo.
There is no doubt in my mind that Hopkins enjoys a close relationship with his furry friend. He has a passion for painting, which is why Niblo appears in several of his paintings. He has aimed to explore dreams and the unconscious mind in his art. He has produced a vibrant print design called Dream Cat, which examines dreams and the unconscious mind.
