Phone home to talk to cats?
Freddie’s personal assistant Peter Freestone wrote about how much the singer cared about his cats. “He’d get to a hotel, we’d dial through and he really would talk to his cats,” writes Freestone. “Mary [Austin] would hold Tom and Jerry in turn up to the receiver to listen to Freddie talking. This continued throughout the years with succeeding feline occupants of his houses.”
The cats had their own bedrooms!
Freddie’s cats reportedly had their own bedrooms in his London Mansion and hs often had more concern about his cats than most human interaction and or contact.
