With four kids at home, Dancing with the Stars host Brooke Burke-Charvet has a full household. But if you ask her, it's really run by her other two little ones: cats Tazzy and Willow.
"They kind of rule the house," she tells PEOPLE of her pets, whom she rescued four years ago. "They love to lounge outside in the backyard. They love to eat. They love to hang on the couch with the kids. They kind of do whatever the heck they want to do in the house, to tell you the truth."
Though she originally intended to only bring home one cat, the star says she was swayed after meeting the pair of felines – to her children's delight.
One's fast, clever and enamored by empty boxes. The other is slow, steady and skillful at playing hard-to-get.
So who will win this epic showdown?

We all could really (wheel-y!) learn a thing or two from this pig.
Despite being born with malformed hind legs, 6-month-old Chris P. Bacon just rolls with it in a pseudo-wheelchair crafted by his owner, Dr. Len Lucero. The pig was brought to the vet, who resides in Sumterville, Fla., in December after his mother had rejected him and withheld milk due to his deformity. But, "he was full of life," Lucero told The Gainesville Sun. "He had a good heart rate and the attitude of a normal pig."
Since being taken in, Chris has also become a viral sensation thanks to YouTube videos posted by Lucero of the piggy in his wheelchair. But the budding star's latest public appearance on Monday at the University of Florida came on the heels of some more serious news: Chris underwent an operation for a hernia.

It's a weighty issue: At 27 in., Ulric's waist is as big as that of a human. And at 30 lbs., he struggles to clean himself and can barely walk. Yep, he's a cat – and his growing size is earning him an increasing amount of attention abroad.
When he was declared morbidly obese by a vet, his owner, Jan Mitchell, decided she had to do something drastic. So she entered Ulric, who is believed to be the largest feline in Great Britain, into a pet fitness competition run by the PDSA animal charity, and he's now on a diet, according to the Daily Mail.
