Read Joe Perry’s Beautiful Letter To His Cat

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry recently wrote a letter addressed to his cat named Icon as part of a new book called A Letter To My Cat, which collects personal letters from famous cat owners such as Oprah Winfrey, Tony Bennett, Hilary Duff, Willow Smith, and more. “I love when you express yourself by actually chirping, and I even love when you wake me up at 7 a.m. with your gentle taps on my nose because you like to have me keep you company while you eat your breakfast,” he writes. “This is after I explain to you I had a gig the night before and have just gotten to sleep! I really don’t mind, though; your touch is always gentle and loving.” Read the rest of the letter here. Billy Corgan, your move.
