WITH BEN NARINE OF IN HEARTS WAKE
Behind every great band there’s an even cuter puppy, so it’s time to meet the loveable critters waiting to greet your favourite acts as they stumble through the door after a brutal bout of touring. We’ll be treating you to the friendliest and furriest, an
Pet’s Name: Rosie Nickname: Bird, Cheeky. Age: 10 months. Sex: Female. Breed: Cockatiel. How you met: I came home from America on Christmas Eve after recording Earth-walker to find my sister had brought a little friend home, it was a nice surprise! Favourite food: Corn, carrot and anything we are eating. She will try anything and it’s funny when she doesn’t like it. Most annoying habit: Nibbling on jewellery and having to sit as close as she possibly can to your face.
Most endearing habit: Always wanting head scratches. Rosie will see my hand sitting on my lap, so she will walk over to it and put her head down for a scratch. It’s pretty cute but if you don’t pat her she gets angry and bites. Usually found: Walking around the house somewhere chirping to herself or trying to eat our food. The inspiration for: Learning to fly. Biggest fuck up: She has flown away on us a couple of times but she’s still only small and can’t get very far. We’ve had to go searching for her in the neighbours’ yards a couple of times. Most touching moment: When I found her after she flew away one time. I think she was shocked so she wouldn’t whistle and I found her hiding under a big leaf in the next door neighbour’s garden. The most embarrassing thing you do with your pet when nobody’s looking: Just talking to her all the time like she is a human, I guess everyone does that with their pets though, right? My pet shits all over your pet because: It shits all over everything, literally everything!
