Noel Gallagher has revealed he isn’t the biggest fan of pets and thinks his family’s cat Boots is a ‘pain in the ar*e’.
As it came to light Noel’s brother Liam was left ‘absolutely gutted’ over the death of his beloved sausage dog, Noel was heard opening up about his own pets and admitted that he’s often telling his family to get rid of their pet cat.
The Oasis rocker, 53, revealed that two people in his family are actually allergic to the cat, but they refuse to let the cat go despite his suggestions.
He revealed: ‘I’m not passionate about pets, they’re a pain in the ar *e.’
‘I’ve got a cat in London and there’s four of us in my family, and two of us are allergic to it – not me,’ Noel explained during an appearance on Matt Morgan’s Funny How? podcast.
‘So, when we’re away on holiday everyone’s totally fine and then when we get back, their eyeballs are on stalks and [they’re] constantly sniffing and sneezing.’
Noel said that when he then suggests they shouldn’t have a cat, his family hit back and tell him: ‘Don’t you dare say that.’
He admits that if he was allergic, the cat would be gone – but Noel, despite seeming anti-Boots, confessed he does have a lot of love for his furry pal.
‘I do love the cat. Our cat is cool, it’s like a dog,’ Noel said. ‘It’s not in any way weird, it’ll come and sit on your lap and all that, but if I was allergic to it, f**k that.’
Noel shares cat Boots with wife Sara MacDonald and their two sons Donovan, 13, and Sonny, 10. He is also dad to daughter Anais Gallagher, 21, from his previous marriage to ex Meg Matthews.
While he may have a love/hate relationship with his pet cat, Noel’s brother Liam was besotted with his beloved pet sausage dog he shared with ex Nicole Appleton.
Liam announced his pup Ruby had died on Twitter alongside a photo of him cuddling the cute dog. He tweeted: ‘Just lost this little girl tnight [sic] absolutely gutted RIP Ruby aka Sparkle x,.’
All Saints star Nicole was just as heartbroken, as she responded: ‘Oh Liam… I’m in bits… our beautiful little Ruby Tuesday… #sparkle.’
Nicole added on Instagram: ‘I can’t even…my beautiful baby girl Ruby Tuesday has passed away. I feel physically sick and incredibly heart broken ? ??. I can’t believe it.’
She and Liam were married for five years and dated for 13 years before splitting in 2013. Their divorced was finalised in 2014.
Nicole and Liam are parents to son Gene, 19. Liam is also dad to son Lennon, 21, from his previous marriage to Patsy Kensit.
He shares daughter Molly, 22, with Lisa Moorish – who he had cheated on ex-wife Patsy with – and daughter Gemma, eight, with Liza Gorbani – who he had an affair with while married to Nicole.
