A Band's Best Friend

A Band’s Best Friend: Tom Kiely of Patient Sixty-Seven and his cat Tiffany

Sure, musicians are cool – they make great art, and they’re usually pretty dope people off-stage too. But you know who’s way cooler than any musician? The pet of any musician.

It’s a medical fact that scene pets are the leading source of nature’s serotonin reserves. Enter: A Band’s Best Friend, one of the all-time greatest columns from the olden days of BLUNT (back when we were in print – remember magazines!?), groomed and re-trained for the modern day. This time around, we’ve been given the privilege to meet Tiffany, the right-hand-woman of Patient Sixty-Seven frontman Tom Kiely.

Whats your best friend’s name?

And what do you actually call them?
Tiffy or Angel-Girl.

What animal is your best friend?
British shorthair kitten.

How did you and your best friend meet?
We brought Tiffany into our lives in 2017! We had always wanted to bring a kitten into the family, and after looking for weeks at shelters and online, at the last minute we got a call from a local breeder saying a beautiful British shorthair girl did not have a home. We couldn’t say yes fast enough, and it really was love at first sight!  

How would you best describe your best friend’s character?
She has a princess complex, which we love. Very sassy and demanding, when Tiffany wants to be. But also very sweet and affectionate too. She doesn’t like being too far away from wherever we are when doing things around the house. Tiffany also likes to play, and isn’t afraid to tell us when it’s time to be fed! A lot of personality to be sure!

Tell us some of the more trying times in your friendship with your best friend? 
Some of the times when she decides to jump at our door for food at 3am have been a bit tricky, because we know getting up and feeding her just encourages it! She also likes to play-wrestle with me and I sometimes forget how sharp her claws are! But it’s all in good fun. 

But what keeps the friendship going strong?
Lots of cuddles, always talking to each other, and hanging out every single day!

Whats your favourite memory with your best friend? 
Probably in her first few years of a kitten, and still occasionally now, when she jumps up on my lap to chill. It’s very cute. Tiffany purrs very loudly and it’s just so adorable. Also all the times playing with her, coming up with new games where she runs around the house like a crazy demon-possessed cat – that’s a lot of fun! 

Where can we catch the adventures of you and your best friend?
Follow me on Instagram (@tomkiely__) or Twitter (@TomKiely_) for lots of Tiffany-related content! I’ve even considered making a P67 shirt with her pretty face on it!
