Cage told David Letterman, "I remember lying on my bed for hours and Lewis was on the desk across my bed and we just stared at each other for hours - not moving, just staring at each other, and I had no doubt that he was my brother."

Queen front man Freddie Mercury loved his cats so much that he reportedly spoke to them on the phone when he was on tour.
