KATIE: Who is this imposter? I'm the only one around here with a mustache.
WAFFLES: OMG, Boss! That's Freddie Meow-cury!
KATIE: Freddie who?
WAFFLES: You know...Bohemian Catsody, Don't Stop Meow, We Are the Champion Cats.
KATIE: Seriously, Waffles. You look more like Groucho Marx in that getup than Freddie Mercury.
WAFFLES: Freddie MEOW-cury, Boss.
Freddie Meow-cury Etsy Find
Just last week a fellow Freddie fan and friend posted a photo on Facebook (how's THAT for alliteration!) of a Freddie Mercury action figure doll. He kind of looked like a cross between GI Joe and Barbie's Ken but dressed up like Freddie. It got Glogirly to thinking though, that there might be some cool looking Freddie Mercury dolls out there. So she did a quick Google search and found something even better. A FREDDIE MEOW-CURY doll!
He's an adorable handmade felt doll from a sweet shop on Etsy called Brussel Sprout Babes. Brook Russel (get it, Brussel?!) is the talented artisan behind this clever creation. She's from Minnesota too, so we knew she had to be special.
Glogirly HAD. TO. HAVE. HIM.
Freddie arrived just a couple days ago. Katie and Waffles have been checking him out ever since. Brooke is a fellow Cat Lady, so we're sure Freddie came with all sorts of kitty smells! But Katie and Waffles seem to have figured out that he belongs to Glogirly and is not a cat toy.
Many of our friends and readers know that Glogirly loves Freddie Mercury and Queen. The Bohemian Rhapsody biopic was her favorite movie of 2018. Brooke must be a fan too because the attention to detail on Freddie Meow-cury is over the top!

He's wearing his iconic yellow jacket and white pants with stripes up the side with a square-buckled belt. His mustache and eyebrows are purr-fect. Glogirly giggled out loud when she saw the back of his head with his black hair. His tail looks a little like a lightning bolt. Perhaps a nod to David Bowie. He even has some little chest hairs!
And his heart-shaped nose is a tribute to Freddie Mercury's deep love of cats.
Freddie Meow-cury is available as a made to order item in the Brussel Sprout Babes Etsy Shop HERE.
