Actress Jenna Fischer has become a new America’s Sweetheart of sorts playing Pam, a lovably ordinary receptionist on the hit NBC television show “The Office.” But when the director yells cut and the cast goes home, it’s life as usual for Fischer and her best friend, Andy.

“There’s an aspect of Hollywood that can be a little superficial. I try not to partake in that too much. As actors, we get invited to parties and cocktail events and movie premieres all the time. I could be doing something like that every night of the week,” Fischer says, adding that she prefers to spend her free time at home with Andy. “I love to sit and watch TV. In the winter, I love to sit by the fire and watch a movie with him on my lap all covered up. I love just anything that’s sleeping and cuddling and relaxing.”

“Andy is my first and only cat that I’ve ever had,” says the actress who has also fostered more than a dozen cats in need of help. “And you know, he’s just been my best friend now for 16 years.”

i LOVE that Hollywood celebrity is showcased with her cat. I think that more "famous" celebrities need to publicly declare their love for cats. Cats always seem to be the second class citizen behind dogs but they'll always be first in my book. I love Cat Fancy anyway but Natural Cat will probably be my new favorite! I love The Office and I love cats!
