Not only is Chris Colfer cute as a button, an amazing actor and a talented singer, but he is also an animal activist.

In April, Colfer was praised for adopting a cat who was not only older at 8 years-old, but also quite heavy at 22 pounds.

Yesterday, while appearing on “Live with Kelly!” Colfer talked about his new animal friend named Brian and touched on his “diet.”

“He’s a little bit in denial about his size and thinks he’s very very small. So I go home and find him stuck in all kinds of things,” Colfer said.

He tried to slim Brian down, but the cat just won’t listen. The “Glee” star even attempted to put him on a diet, but as Colfer puts it “. . . he kept breaking into the food.”

Brian seems to love Colfer. “He doesn’t quite fit in my lap, but he sure tries,” Colfer said.

Colfer even joked with his Twitter followers about Brian’s weight. “Note to self: Next time you’re looking for keys, wallet, or phone, begin with checking under the cat.”

Brian was rescued from the West Valley Animal Shelter and Colfer encourages everyone to adopt.
