Katy Perry Mourns The Loss Of Her Cat Kitty Purry: 'Thanks For The Cuddles'

By Jeff Mazzeo

Katy Perry's feline mascot, Kitty Purry, has passed on and the singer shared a special tribute to pay homage to her beloved cat.

The "Never Worn White" artist shared the sad news with her millions of fans on Instagram on Saturday night. Katy penned a sweet message and shared some of her favorite moments with the unlikely friend. She explained how Kitty Purry wandered into her life and provided her with joy and comfort over the years.

Katy's Sweet Tribute


"Kitty Purry crawled through my then-boyfriend’s window 15 years ago, fully pregnant and seeking shelter. Two litters and many moons later, this street cat became a lovable mascot to many. Sadly, Kitty completed her 9th life last night. I hope she rests in salmon fillets and tuna tartare way up in catnip heaven. Kitty, thanks for the cuddles and companionship along the way. Big thanks to my brother David and @garethwalters for being great co-parents 💔 #kittypurryforever," she wrote on social media.

Fans Pay Their Respects


Like the singer, her fans felt very close to her "mascot" because of how cute she was and the creative name. When Katy shared the Kitty news, her post exploded with condolences and love.

"Love you kitty purry. You’re a legend and you will FUR sure live on in us all. ❤️❤️" one mourning fan commented, while another said, "rip to a major feline icon. hope she is rolling in cat nip at the rainbow bridge rn."

Kris Jenner sent her condolences in the form of broken heart 💔💔💔🙏 emojis.

Kitty Purry Will Live On As Makeup


Katy honored her feline friend by naming her one of her shades of Covergirl lipstick after Kitty Purry in 2016. In fact, she gushed to Vogue about how Kitty Purry was a lifesaver. The publication asked her which shade she would take if she was on a desert island and she chose the one named after her cat.

"Oof, why do you make me pick," she said. "I would probably pick my Kitty Purry lipstick, because if I accidentally left my house with only Kitty Purry in my bag, I'd be like, 'Okay, great. I can put it on my cheeks, lips, and on my eyes,' if I blend it well into my face."

"You can be really creative with just a little color. You can't exactly do that with mascara, even though it's very essential. Lipstick and mascara are my two essentials, but if you're making me pick one, it's going to be Kitty Purry all over the face."

RIP Kitty Purry. You were the purrrfect pet.
