At the end, Freddie Mercury cuddled his favorite cat in a stunning photo.
FREDDIE MERCURY’S cats brought him a lot of joy throughout his life, and they sat on his bed right up until the end.
One of the last things he could think of was to stroke them.
Freddie’s favorite was his “princess,” despite the fact that he adored all of them.
He even wrote a song about her, and she appears alongside him in the Queen star’s last known photograph.
It’s important to remember that, as we approach the 40th anniversary of the death of one of our greatest stars on November 24, he was surrounded by love at the end.
After Freddie’s death, Brian May spoke out against the popular belief that his friend died alone and unloved.
In fact, his partner Jim Hutton, ex-girlfriend Mary Austin, live-in chef and ex-boyfriend Joe Fanelli, close friend Dave Clarke, and PA and friend Peter Freestone looked after Freddie 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Not only that, but he was surrounded by his “children,” with six of his beloved cats living with him.
One “ruled the roost,” one left after Freddie died and never returned, and one was Freddie’s favorite.
In the early 1970s, Freddie’s long-term girlfriend Mary Austin gave them their first pair of cats.
Tiffany, Dorothy, Delilah, Goliath, Lily, Miko, Oscar, and Romeo accompanied Tom and Jerry throughout the years.
When Freddie was on tour, he would call home, and Mary or his personal assistant Peter Freestone would hold the cats up to the receiver.
“Freddie wouldn’t do anything without her,” Peter said of Delilah, who arrived at the house with her black cat Goliath.
She was a…hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
I believe the term has been tainted.
She was able to obtain everything she desired.
I was at home during the last tour.
He would call every two or three days, requesting to speak with a cat.
You pick her up, tuck her under your arm, place the speaker near her mouth, and squeeze (to get her to miaow).
Then he’d be able to say he’d spoken with Delilah and that he was overjoyed.”
‘If Freddie Mercury had lived, he would have married Mary,’ Queen says.
Delilah was “their little princess, the one he’d pick up and stroke the most often,” according to Jim.
It was one of his.
