Melmon was 6 months when Justin Vernon rescued her from an animal shelter. She lives at the converted veterinary clinic which serves as Bon Ivers recording studio. Melmo and her sister Flo like to hunt outside and play with iPads in their downtime. The felines were inspiration for a salmon coloured cruelty-free sneaker. The shoe had herringbone accents and a black fishbone design.
