Meet Britain’s cheekiest cat who sticks his TONGUE out every time he hears his favourite U2 song.
Jesse, a nine-year-old long haired Persian, has gone viral after owner Gary Adams posted a video online of him lapping up Bono belting out the hits.
Gary, 49, says the moggie always sticks his tongue out while listening to U2 classic ‘Where The Streets Have No Name’.
Bizarrely, Jesse’s tongue remains protruding for several hours afterwards and he has become notorious around the neighbourhood of Harborne in Birmingham.
A video clip shows Jesse closing his eyes and bobbing his head to the beat midway through the guitar solo.
Gary, who adopted former stray Jesse six years ago when he wandered into his garden, said: “He is quite well known in the neighbourhood for sitting outside the house waiting for passers-by.
“He likes to listen to U2 every day and his tongue just comes out and it stays there for the rest of the day.
“He lies down on his back, sticks his tongue out and waits for a stroke on his belly. He really does make people laugh.
“After he was abandoned and came into our garden we took him to the vet to sort out his teeth.
“He had gum disease and had to have one of his two front teeth removed – that’s when he started sticking his tongue out but only when he heard U2.
“He is cheeky and a bit of a character. It’s quite unusual for cats to stick their tongue out.
“It’s also unusual how he follows you round like a dog and joins us on a half-mile circular route.”
Gary, an area manager for energy giant E.On, added: “He does like music and sticks his tongue out during U2’s The Streets Have No Name.
“When it gets to the guitar solo it’s as if his mouth gets relaxed by the music, but he doesn’t do it during other songs.
“I posted some video on social media and within 24 hours more than 20,000 people around the world had viewed and shared it. It went bonkers.”
