Look how cute they are!
Billy Corgan, of Smashing Pumpkins fame, is a proud father of some adopted buds, but he doesn't have any children — just cats!
The musician adopted two feline brothers ten years ago - Sammi and Mr. Thom - and he credits it as one of the best decisions he's ever made!
"They're rock 'n' roll cats, used to different environments. I was raised in homes where animals were part of the family but subservient to other goals. In my home, the animals run the show. At best we're equals. But that's the way it should be. They have every right to live and be happy as much as I do."
Billy Corgan is hoping to raise money for the organization that hosts spray and neuter clinics, and also calls for no-kill animal shelters. Billy also said:
"The blessing of having an animal is the healing and joy from a relationship that's based in unconditional love – or unrequited [when] speaking of Sammi – that makes it all worth it."
That's the best part about cats though!
They don't just love you automatically, you have to earn it, and even then they might give you the cold shoulder every now and then!!!
Good stuff, Billy.
