If you are a cat person, you buy it a nice collar. If you are a cat rockstar, you dedicate songs to them. And that is precisely what Freddie Mercury, aka the Ultimate Cat Guy did.


His love of cats is said to have started in the 1970s when Mercury’s girlfriend Mary Austin bought a pair of cats – Tom and Jerry. According to several biographers, such as his personal assistant Peter Freestone, while Freddie was touring with Queen, he would call Austin (that was caring for the animals when Freddie was away) to check up on their little critters.


According to some reports, Freddie eventually hosted a total of ten cats, Dorothy, Delilah, Goliath, Lily, Miko, Oscar, Tiffany, and Romeo.


The Queen Archives report that Freddie dedicated his solo album, Mr. Bad Guy, to his cat Jerry, as well as the rest of his brood at the time, and he extended the note to ‘all the cat lovers across the universe.’


Fans have discovered another clue of the singer’s love for cats on the inside of the Classic Queen CD insert. For what would be his last portrait, Mercury wore a striking vest with cats on it. Closer inspection reveals that the handpainted cats featured are his own. He also wore it for his last video, These Are The Days Of Our Lives.
