yet." Loeb’s cathouse got bigger in November 2009 when her daughter, Lyla Rose, was born, followed by a son, Emet, in 2012.
Still, the cats have handled the new additions as well as expected. "He has to kiss them and say hello to them each morning and they’re very patient — even Chinchy. He will grab you." Loeb loves her children, but the cats are top dog in her house.
"I was touring so much, I didn’t know if I could have one, but I was dating a guy who didn’t like to go on the road, so we adopted the cat for the night and went to Petco to buy items for him." That was Chinchy Morty. "Chinchy was biting my ankles and attacking me in bed and friends told me that another cat would calm them down, so we went to a vet who does adoptions and got Sweetie," she says. "If you know them, they’re great, but they have their moods.
Sweetie Mc Gee was cuddly the first day, but was hiding when we took her home," she says.
Behind the scenes, she has been as devoted to cats as she is to glasses or guitars. "I want to pet cats I see on the street, even if I shouldn’t." Currently, two felines are the objects of her feline affections: Chinchy Morty, a "mutt" she says looks like a Russian Blue, and Sweetie Mc Gee, who she describes as a tortie similar to a calico but with every color. When she was growing up in Dallas, her family had two cats for 18 years, a tabby and a black-and-white short-haired cat, who died while she was in college.

Marlo Thomas’ patriarchy-smashing record was played in my parents’ basement on continual repeat, and I sing the chorus regularly around our apartment.
Hearing Loeb’s voice, instant nostalgia from my days of high-school, trill the lines of a childhood emo favorite, is a trip. I put it on while brushing out and pig-tailing up the kid’s hair the other day, which is an otherwise painful ordeal, and said child was contented, particularly delighted with the interstitial stop-motion animation between sing-a-longs.
For instance, her acclaimed video for "Stay," filmed in actor Ethan Hawke’s New York City apartment, featured his cat, Mardoe, in a crucial role, albeit with some challenges.
