She tours all over the world but Florence and the Machine star Florence Welch knows how important it is to come home to a friendly face. The singer, 27, has adopted a cat from Battersea Cats and Dogs Home to keep her company while she works on her new album.
She chose tortoiseshell beauty Missus, who was only taken in by the animal charity last week after her owner could no longer care for her, because of her “friendly” nature. Florence now hopes the four-year-old feline will be the perfect songwriting partner as she works on a follow up to 2011′s critically acclaimed album Ceremonials.
She said: “I decided to rehome a rescue cat because I’m at home quite a lot working on my third album and it will be lovely to have a cat around the house again. ”I chose Missus because she was extremely friendly and, straight away, came to sit on my lap where she seemed to make herself very comfortable. ”She’ll be a very good writing partner and we’ll probably spend lots of time together.”
Other celebrities to rehome one of Battersea’s cats include comedian Alistair McGowan, presenter Lauren Laverne, children’s author Dame Jacqueline Wilson.
Camberwell-born Florence admitted she had a hard time selecting her favourite moggy. She said: “I always used to see Battersea on my way to school so it was the first place I thought to go to rehome a cat, the only problem is I want to take them all home!”
