Celebrities love their cats too. That’s why Katy Perry mourned the recent loss of her cat, Kitty Purry, which had even made a cameo appearance in her music video for her song “Roar.”

Curiously, Katy Perry said she didn’t care for cats initially until a cat crawled through her boyfriend’s window. “I started to have to be a little more patient, I had to really kind of figure her out. And then I started to notice, ‘Oh my God, maybe that’s kind of how I am.’ You have to take a little patience with me. You have to earn my affection.”
