Nicolas Cage -- Cool Cat Who Loves Dogs (VIDEO)

EXCLUSIVE

Nicolas Cage fell in love Wednesday at the Burbank Airport ... and our photog is responsible for it.

Jesse was multitasking ... holding his camera in one hand and a leash in the other. His apartment is being re-carpeted so he had to take Otis, his fiancee's chihuahua, to work. 

Nic had a thing for Otis, and then proceeded to tell us about his favorite dog and a tiger-like cat in his menagerie.  

By the way, Jesse got married this past weekend. He called his wife his fiancee. Force of habit, maybe. BTW ... Congrats!!!
