As further proof that rockstars are real people too (still debatable), there’s a set of 10 note cards now for sale with photos of musical legends and their loving animal counterparts. Did you realize that John Lennon was such a cat lover? Or that Patti Smith had a (presumably lucky) black cat? Or that David Bowie has a dog other than Diamond Dogs? The Morrison Hotel Gallery is giving 100% of the sales from this $20 box of cards goes to the charity Rational Animal,¬†which raises awareness and money for the homeless animals in NYC and nationwide. See a sneak peek ahead and get all gooey inside.


John Lennon had a whole host of cats throughout his life. It started with the famed feline, Elvis, that he had with his mother (who they realized was a lady kitty once she had a litter in the house). In the early 60s, he and his first wife Cynthia and son Julian had 10 cats. The first was a Tabby cat named Mimi after John’s aunt. With May Pang, he had two cats, black and white, Major and Minor. Then with Yoko and Sean came at least 6 cats, Salt and Pepper and Misha, Shasha, Charo and Alice.

Who can name the cat in this photo?
