Maya Rudolph Talking About Kids Wanting a Cat on Ellen

Maya Rudolph’s Kids Want a Cat So Bad, They’re Holding Out For Their Allergic Mom to, Well, Die

Maya Rudolph's kids really, really want a cat despite their mom being allergic, and well, they're being pretty savage about it. Sitting down with Ellen DeGeneres during "Cat Week," the hilarious The Good Place actress explained that her kids are mad at her because they were hoping to welcome an adorable feline into their home, which already houses more than one dog and four kids (sounds like a good idea, right?).

"I'm highly allergic to cats," Maya told Ellen. "My children are very mad at me about it because they really want a cat — we have dogs — but yeah, my kids want a cat. My 5-year-old recently begged me for a cat, and I said, 'I'm sorry, honey, we can't have a cat because Mommy's allergic,' and she said, 'Mommy, when you die, can we get a cat?' I thought that was really sweet of her."

Ellen asked the question we're all thinking following that hysterical story, which is if she said yes to her daughter. "I said, 'Absolutely!'"

Despite all this, and the fact that she thinks cats are just "fine," Maya still kind of wants — nay, needs — a kitty around, because of a, um, rodent issue (yikes).

"I have rats at my house, so I need a cat," she said. Ellen informed her that this makes sense, as there's a recent infestation in the Valley, where Maya and her family live. "Oh, they've been there for years," Maya said of her rats. When Ellen apprehensively asked how many rats she's had, Maya grimly responded: "I just smell them when they're dead. So, quite a few."

Hear the rest of what Maya had to say about her kids — namely, the "reason" she had four — in the video above, and prepare to belly laugh.
