John Lennon A Cat Lover

(Gibson) John Lennon, a cat lover? It seems so. According to Mental Floss, the late Beatles musician had a strong fondness for cats and owned several during his lifetime, beginning during his childhood.

Little Lennon's first pet was named Elvis, and the cat was actually owned by his mom, Julia. Both Lennon and his mom adored Elvis Presley, which is where they got the cat's name. As the story goes, the Lennons were a bit shocked with Elvis who they thought was a male cat gave birth to a littler of cats in the cupboard.

When Lennon who also had a liking for dogs married his first wife, Cynthia, he gave her a dog named Bernard as a gift. Bernard and Sally were supposed to be John's only two pet dogs.
