The X Factor semifinalist Josh Krajcik has made it far into the competition, and as it winds down, there’s one thing he’s looking forward to: spending time with his kitty.
“I want to get to my cat,” Krajcik told PEOPLE on Wednesday. “My cat is at a babysitter’s and has been for the last three months.”
Krajcik, who sang the Beatles’s “Come Together” and Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” feels so strongly about the feline, a tabby named Maya, that he has written tunes for her.
“She comes running whenever I whistle her theme songs,” he said. “She is my biggest fan. I miss her dearly. I know that sounds lame. We are best friends. We are obsessed with each other.”
