Rats and Chickens...
People Magazine reveals while growing up, Francesca Eastwood's friends felt uneasy going over to her house – not because of her famous father, Clint, but because of the rat room.
"We call it the rat room because we have, like, really, 14 rats," she said to the celebrity news magazine. "But they're really sweet animals. They're very clean and loving."
Francesca, 18, who stars with step-mom Dina and 15-year-old sister Morgan in the new E! reality series Mrs. Eastwood and Company, has joined her animal-loving family in caring for chinchillas, chickens, pigs and tortoises over the years, but don't expect to see any dogs or cats.
"My step-mom and my dad are both allergic to cats and dogs," Francesca explains. "[But having different animals] always been really fun. I'm such an animal lover now, and no doubt because I was raised in a house full of animals."
