Hello!

I know George had a couple of cats, but what were their names? Also, did he have any other pets??

Thanks!

Cats??? I never knew of this! I second that question.

He had loadsss of cats from about the time he bought Kinfauns until his death, a lot of the photos of him at home feature his cats. 

A few of them I can remember are Corky, Rupert and Joss Stick. Corky being a white cat (sorry I'm bad at cat breeds), and Rupert and Joss Stick were Siamese. To earn their keep, the cats used to model in cat food adverts a-hard-days-night-george-9.

^One of the Siamese 

 

At least one of the Siamese lived in Friar Park, however there only appears to be photos of Corky at Kinfauns.

^I think it's one of George's cats in this photo with John. 

 

And he had dogs throughout the 90's particularly (Dhani is a big dog person so I imagine it was his influence).

I hope he's keeping tabs as he promised me one as well.

Nice. I was going to warn against standing too close to Ringo, but didn't know how many would get the reference. 

In the spirit of staying on topic - does George look like he is the only one savoring his ale?

No, it's a random cat backstage at Shea Stadium, @AppleScruffJunior. Photo taken by Robert Whitaker as The Beatles relaxed before facing their biggest ever audience.

^Very good, I probably should have checked the origins of it first. I was looking for photos of Joss Stick and that just happened to come up. What are the odds of a Siamese cat being at Shea???

I knew if somebody was going to fact check ASJ about these cats it would be Ron Nasty. Fascinating info from the both of yall.

I actually checked that picture a few months ago, when @Beatlebug wondered whether it was John and Mimi.

Can I argue that George bothered to get a passport for his cat to go on tour with him*, but he left the wife at home because she'd ruin his groove? 

 

*And of course nothing was ever mentioned about George's cat on tour with The Beatles in documents BUT they never explicitly said that he didn't bring a cat with him!

This is kind of a weird question, I'm either correct in my assumptions or I'm crazy: 

In the When We Was Fab video, was the red/black colour combination purposely the same as the rooftop concert?

I have no idea, I never even noticed that until you pointed it out. Does anyone know?
