Indie Rock Kitty Needs A Home

Last time we saw Bon Iver, he was on the Lower East Side being interviewed by Andrew W.K. This time the magically voiced one — when he’s singing, not talking — has been called in to help the Secretly Canadian/Jagjaguwar house cat find a new crib. The little dude’s name’s Dan Burton (after the front man for the Early Day Miners), and because of the label’s locale, he should be adopted by someone in Central/Southern Indiana. Got it, Hoosiers? This from Lucy at Secretly/Jag HQ:

He’s unbelievably sweet. He will let you hold his paws. All he wants is to sit on you and be cute. I have actually never met a cat this nice in my life. He needs a visit to the vet and the person will be subject to rigorous questioning by the staff of Jagjaguwar. He clearly has a lot of love to give.

Why give him up? Well the Jag folks are allergic. Plus, “It’s also hard to work on Bon Iver and Besnard Lakes press with a kitty jumping on your keyboard.” Also they described Dan as a “total chill factory.” Send serious inquiries only to [email protected] In the meantime, a less serious inquiry: How about you put your PhotoShop to use and make some prize-winning LOLCats out of Bon and Dan? Just don’t turn Pete Doherty on us. We like Dan too much for that. We’ll post the best ones, so send ‘em in to tips at stereogum dot com. Purrrty please.

Lest you aren’t hip to the excellence that is Bon Iver:
