Mandy Moore Shares Rare Glimpse of Her Backyard Including Two Surprise Wild Visitors

There's nothing we love quite like an unofficial celebrity house tour, and Mandy Moore recently gave her followers a rare glimpse at her gorgeous, badland-esque backyard.

Earlier this month, Moore showed off the sunny setting while also revealing a few surprise visitors that were seen walking throughout the foliage. In a video posted to her Instagram Story, Moore said, “Look at these friends in our yard!!!” The clip showed a pair of wild felines stalking through her yard, where we can see a white stone patio surrounded by cacti and bushes.

The This Is Us actress wasn't exactly sure what type of animals they were though, and in the rest of her caption, she asked, “Lynx? Bobcats?” Because the video was shot from inside her home, it's unclear which exact animal was there, but luckily, they're seen walking away at the end of the video.

The 37-year-old filmed the clip from inside the 1950s home that she shares with her husband, Taylor Goldsmith. The pair's home sits on top of a tall Pasadena hill, and we can see a bit of this gorgeous setting in the background of the actress's video.

It's no surprise Moore filmed their visitors, because she has always had a soft spot for animals. According to PopSugar, Moore owns four rescue cats, named Vincent, Maddie, Theo and Addison. She has also been the owner of rescue dogs, including her current pup, Jackson (who we assume is the one that could be heard barking at the cats in Moore's video).

Last December, Moore lost one of her dogs, Joni, and she made a loving post in memory of the pet. Along with a shot of Joni, Moore detailed their close relationship and said, “I will love and miss you forever, my Joni. Thank you for beyond a lifetime of love.”

Just don't try to let those wild cats into the house, Mandy.
