John Lennon was killed thirty years ago today, and the New York Times had some pieces on the Op-Ed page remembering him – including one from Yoko Ono where she talks about John’s love for cats:
JOHN and I are in our Dakota kitchen in the middle of the night. Three cats — Sasha, Micha and Charo — are looking up at John, who is making tea for us two.
Sasha is all white, Micha is all black. They are both gorgeous, classy Persian cats. Charo, on the other hand, is a mutt. John used to have a special love for Charo. “You’ve got a funny face, Charo!” he would say, and pat her.
Of course, Menandcats.com is not at all surprised that a talented, artistic, and inspiring man such as John Lennon was a tremendous cat lover.
