On Instagram, Freddie Mercury Club posted many photos of the Queen legend and showed his passion for cats with their followers.

Freddie Mercury Club also shared how Freddie lived with as many as 10 cats in Garden Lodge.

Here is the caption of the photos:

“Some general facts about Freddie’s cats:

At one point Freddie lived with as many as 10 cats in Garden Lodge. And while he was on tour he would call home to talk to them. It was often Mary or Phoebe who would hold the cats up to the phone so they could listen to him speak.

Freddie didecated his solo album, Mr Bad Guy, to Tom and Jerry, a pair that moved in when Freddie and Mary bought them during Queen’s starting years in the early Seventies. The rest of the dedication was extended to “all the cat lovers across the universe.

Although Mary and Freddie split in the late Seventies, he continued to see Tom and Jerry, and a few years later Mary gave him Tiffany, a longhaired bluepoint.

There was also Oscar, a ginger tomcat who belonged to one of Freddie’s boyfriends (Tony Bastin) and was taken in when the relationship was over. Oscar often took to the other houses in the neighbourhood, eschewing his ever-multiplying female companion in Garden Lodge . (Oh Oscar…😁 )

Freddie rescued many of his cats from the Blue Cross shelter. Among them were Miko, a tabby that was named after Freddie returned from Japan; Delilah the princess & Goliath, a tiny black cat that had a habit of hiding.

Goliath entered the house in 1987 on the same day as Freddie’s favorite Delilah. We all know how much she meant to Freddie as he actually wrote a song for her and included it on Queen’s album Innuendo.

The waistcoat Freddie wears in The Days of Our Lives video was also a gift from Donald McKenzie, who painted all of Freddie’s cats onto the coat.

Before passing away in 1991, Freddie made sure all his cats were taken care of. But even as late as 2003, there were still reports of Delilah being spotted on the wall of Garden Lodge.😩

P.S. As if Freddie wasn’t perfect and loveable enough…he had to be a cat lover too ❤”
