Famous Folks' Felines



David Bowie
1947 - 2016

I haven't added any new installations to my series
lately of famous people who love cats.
Today seemed appropriate upon learning of
David Bowie's passing yesterday.

I wonder if this was Major Tom...cat. :)

or please an audience.  My work is always stronger
when I get very selfish about it."

  3. I'm guessing yes, Major Tom it is. Did you notice how they both seem to have the same expression on their faces?

    1. I did notice that! Same expression! I did a post once on how often people look like their pets. Quite a funny post, actually.

  6. I was saddened to learn this, I liked his music, especially Major Tom ...
    He was very well thought of from his peers.
    Lovely quote.

  8. Just heard about David Bowie today. Such a shame. I enjoyed his work, no matter what stage he was going through!

  9. That is an extraordinary picture.. I didn't know much about his personal life or his love of cats. I also enjoyed something Suzanne put on fb about him.

  10. Very selfish the cat can do
    Or at least he can pretend to lol
    Dumb cancer takes a ton
    Good tribute that was done.

      None of us can influence, it's true.

  11. The background, his colouring, the cat's colouring, all combine in such a beautiful, vulnerable shot. Bowie was an incredible artist.

    2. Absolutely not. But it's not so overly composed that it hits you over the head.

  13. That's a great picture of David Bowie and his fur baby. I was really sad to hear about his passing this morning. There were so many of his songs that I loved, there's no way I can pick a favorite.
    RIP David!

  14. Wonderful Betsy - this is one photo we haven't seen else where. Such a sad loss ... but he made his end his own - incredible video and music ... Hilary

  15. Everyone was shocked when myself and another coworker didn't know who David Bowie was. Either, any victim of cancer is very sad. RIP
