Pet Sounds is back! Josh from Posthuman tells us all about his two lovely feline friends:
“Meet Roland & Juno, my regular studio companions.
Roland is two, he’s a silver Egyptian Mau and the most strangely behaved cat I’ve ever known. I’ve had cats all my life but Roland acts more like a dog – he follows you round the house and cries when you don’t let him hang out with you. He just wants to play all the time and is frighteningly agile (can jump a clear six feet in the air). Despite being fiercely loyal he’s actually a massive wuss when strangers come into the house and will hide until they’ve gone. He’s also prone to jealous tantrums when he’s not getting attention, and has destroyed furniture, pulled light fittings from the ceiling, and is generally a menace…
Juno on the other hand is serene. We got her about five years ago as a rescue kitten; the wife of a guy I used to DJ with worked for a cat charity and brought her round – my wife just fell in love with her instantly, so that was that. She is tiny, and spends her day draped around my shoulders while I work. She’ll happily sit underneath a speaker in the studio and has been known to crash out or destroy my work by clambering onto keyboards when I’m writing.”
If you’re a DJ with a pet (cats, dogs, iguanas, rats, we love ‘em all!) and would like to take part in Pet Sounds we’d love to hear from you. Mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
