Bands with Cats – Jason Myers from Get Over It, and Tako
– by Cheena Jean Normandin
Your band(s) and role/instrument:
I’m the guitarist in Get Over It.
What is your cat’s name?
Tako Yaki. She’s a three-year-old tabby.
What’s Tako’s origin story?
I won the cat on a bet, a bowling wager on the first date with my present girlfriend. The girlfriend, Tako and I all now all live together. I have since quit bowling cause I feel like I rolled the perfect game.
Who feeds Tako? What does she usually eat?
Whoever gets annoyed by the aggressive pleading first usually feeds Tako. She eats a blend of raw chicken and Tiki cat canned food. She has expensive tastes.
What do you think Tako’s theme song is?
“Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”, Cyndi Lauper.
What is the most impressive thing that Tako has murdered?
The over-priced vintage chair my girlfriend bought when she first moved in.
If Tako sees a GIANT spider, what is her first course of action? Continue clawing the shit out of said vintage chair.
Where is the last inconvenient place that Tako has fallen asleep?
My toque. Been rocking a Canadian ushanka all winter.
If Tako threw a raging party, what are the staples on the playlist?
Suicidal Tendencies, as she entices everyone to walk the narrow window ledge.
If you wake up in a Freaky Friday situation with your feline- what’s the first course of action on her behalf?
Tako lives a pretty solid life, I’m thinking status quo.
