Fans of TLC’s reality show My Big Fat Fabulous Life are well aware of Whitney Thore’s obsession with her three cats, Henchi, Ollie, and Wanda. When she decided to add a dog to the Thore mix in Season 8, they were taken aback. That was most likely due to Whitney’s then-fiancé Chase Severino’s love for dogs, which was almost as strong as her love for cats. Chase eventually persuades the cat-mom to add a new dog named Neeshi to the family.

Audiences fell in love with the shy rescue dog right away. Whitney was initially concerned that having a new pet in the house, especially one that was a dog, would upset her beloved felines. Whitney, on the other hand, appeared to have no qualms about welcoming a new four-legged friend into her home, and the cats seemed to enjoy the standard poodle.
