From A-list actresses to chart-topping pop stars, there are quite a few famous cat moms out there who very proud of their sweet baby felines.
Katy Perry – Kitty Purry
It’s no secret that Grammy-nominated pop star Katy Perry has an extensive history of loving cats. She’s always had that “Josie And The Pussycats” vibe, and in 2010, she even released a cat-themed perfume line called “Purr”, which offers a variety of scents and comes in a purple, cat-shaped bottle (obviously!) To date, she has one precious feline baby named Kitty Purry. It is said that, while on tour, Katy Perry missed her beloved cat so much that she requested her management to bring her a “stand-in” cat to keep her company until she got home to her number one man. We know the feels, Katy.

Halle Berry – Real Life Catwoman
Prior to the filming of the 2004 movie Catwoman, Halle Berry considered herself a dog person, but all of that changed when she met her costar, Play-Doh. “I used to be a dog person. I had dogs my whole life. And in making this movie, I learned to really respect and love cats from the research and work I did with them,” she states. After the filming was completed, she was so enamored with Play-Doh that she ended up adopting him! A happy ending after all.

Kesha’s Cat Cult
