Freddie Mercury and his Cats

Mercury did play favorites

Delilah was his ultimate favorite and was described as “the little princess” of their home—“the one he’d pick up and stroke the most often. . . . She’d sleep at the foot of the bed, before slipping out for a nighttime prowl.”

When Freddie was sick…

Mercury penned a song named for his preferred animal. The lyrics read, “You make me smile when I’m just about to cry / You bring me hope, you make me laugh—and I like it / You get away with murder, so innocent / But when you throw a moody you’re all claws and you bite / That’s alright!”
