George the Mesa Theater Cat
So a cat walks into a bar...
Redditor bathsaltrocker69 shared this picture of a thirsty feline taken at Mesa Theater & Lounge in Grand Junction, Colorado, where his band recently played while on tour.
"So I guess this dude shows up every night and everyone in the bar thinks this is normal," he wrote, adding "This cat is named George and sits at the bar every night where we played in Grand Junction. Part Maine Coon and part rad dude if you ask me."
The Post Independent reports that the two-year-old cat (they recently threw him a birthday party) was rescued from a local shelter by bar manager Michelle Nelson, and now makes his home at the popular drinking spot.
Nelson tells the paper, "We’ve had such a positive response to having a cat, especially one with such a unique personality. I think it gives us a friendly vibe and the feel of a neighborhood bar rather than just a theater. He’s definitely part of the family and we love him greatly.”
Since the hard partying puss isn't allowed in the food serving areas (except when he's guzzling shots of water and Party Mix), he likes to while away the hours by snoozing in the office, where he is shut in during shows to keep him from running on stage and making a surprise performance.
