Kat Von D Loses Cat, Home in Fire

by at . Comments

Kat Von D's life just went up in smoke.

The outspoken tattoo artist is mourning the loss of her cat Valentine, whom she lost in a house fire. "R.I.P. my little Valentine," she tweeted Sunday.

That's so sad, not to mention scary. The L.A. Fire department was called and arrived at 11:23 p.m. Sunday to battle what was a very strong blaze.

Kat Von D Fire

The cause of Kat Von D's house fire is still under investigation.

"Fire fighters encountered heavy fire with extreme smoke but they were able to knock down the fire," the captain said. "There was no one home."

"My house burned down last night with my cat inside," Von D, who has been dating Jesse James since August, explained early Monday morning.

"Finally get to sleep away the rest of today. Hope tomorrow is gentler," the L.A. Ink star said. "To gain everything, you must lose everything."

Good to see she's staying strong through this.
