Pete "Tommy" Docherty

The Daily Mail Tendency pokes fun at The Mail for its rather pathetic change of opinion on Pete Docherty.
Pete Doherty may exude rock'n' roll excess, but he's a big softie at heart. The Babyshambles frontman took his three new kittens with him to the recording studio today, where his band are working on their second album, because he didn't want to leave them home alone.

Now—apart from lonely career women and sad old spinsters—who the hell gets a fucking kitten? More specifically, can anyone think of a junkie who got himself a kitten?

Yes, in the film of Trainspotting, the character of Tommy—at that point riddled with AIDS contracted through his heroin habit—adopts a cat and subsequently dies of the (primarily cat-carried) toxoplasmosis.

Just saying, is all...

He's a junky and a dealer, and should be summarily executed.

Quite apart from he touches that pig and is unclean.

Er, me!

Cats, and especially Kittens, are amazing creatures.

I'm certain you've referred to Trixy as a sex kitten before Mr Kitchen. One rule for some...

Anyway, who can blame young Peter for wanting a little pussy to keep him company when he's away from the lovely kate?

(well, somebody had to say it, sigh)

Cats are fucking brilliant and anyone who says otherwise deserves to be buttfucked to death by an orang-utan.

This has been proved repeatedly by scientists and they have graphs.
