“One day while John was recording, the studio receptionist brought in a litter of kittens. John immediately knew what I was thinking and said, ‘No, we can’t. We’re traveling too much.’
I picked up a black one and put him on my shoulder. When I came back into the recording room with him, John rolled his eyes and said, ‘Now you’ve done it! Now you’ve done it!’ I had a moment of wondering what I’d done, when he came over, started petting him and said, ‘Well I guess we have to have a cat.’
At the end of the day when we were leaving the studio, John asked if there were any left. We went back to get the only kitten that remained-a white one that no one wanted because she was so loud. John christened them Major and Minor. He loved those cats. They reminded him of his days with Aunt Mimi (whom he playfully referred to as ‘Cat Woman’).” -May Pang
