ELIZABETH TAYLOR

Elizabeth Taylor was so in love with her Siamese that she was rarely separated from them. Perhaps their gorgeous blue eyes reminded her of her own. Elizabeth found such solace with her Siamese companions that she gave a Siamese kitten to her friend James Dean, hoping to give him the same inner peace.

JAMES DEAN and his KITTEN MARCUS

According to Hollywood insider Charles Dransfeld, Elizabeth Taylor and James Dean shared a brother-sister closeness while filming Giant. He felt safe in confiding his deepest secrets to his friend.
Elizabeth found him to be a sad and lonely individual. She felt the gift of a Siamese kitten would be the perfect companion and an ideal match.
Here are photos and Dean's handwritten instructions to a friend for the care of "Marcus" while he would be away on a weekend trip. Unfortunately Dean would be killed in a car crash enroute. The friend ended up keeping Marcus permanently. Dean only had the kitten for about two weeks.
