Mandy Moore's cat hated his name

Mandy Moore's cat cried "all night" because he hated his name.

The 32-year-old singer hired an animal psychic because her kitty - who was initially called Addison - kept screeching at unreasonable hours and swiftly learnt that he was doing so because he liked to sing and wanted to be named Figaro.

Speaking on the 'Ellen DeGeneres Show' on Tuesday (08.11.16), she said: "I called a pet psychic. I tried everything to stop him. He was like a baby keeping us up all night.

"I had a friend who had had a difficult period with his dog and he called a pet psychic. So that was my last resort.

"I called this woman and she told me that their (my cats') names were Addison and Maddy, my ex-husband had named them after the two 'Moonlighting' characters.

"And I was like, 'OK I don't understand what's going on with him.' And she told me he hated his name, Addison...

"We did it all on the phone. She didn't see a picture, she didn't ask me anything about them, I just regaled the situation.

"She said he hates his name and the reason he's crying all night is because he loves the acoustics in the apartment and he wants to hear himself sing. So he would love for you to change his name. He loves the name Fig, because he loves to sing."

And, although the psychic's revelations raised a few eyebrows, Mandy followed her tips and her cat stopped crying immediately.

She explained: "And I kid you not, we started calling him Figaro and the crying at night stopped immediately. It's crazy!"
