The cat is out of the bag -- Missing Persons singer Dale Bozzio is out of a home.
According to her landlord, Bozzio -- who was convicted of animal cruelty in May after 12 cats found in her New Hampshire home had to be put down -- was evicted after falling two months behind on rent for her San Fernando Valley pad.
The new wave singer allegedly owes $4,400.
TMZ spoke to Bozzio, who says she's vacating the property and will pay what she owes.
Bozzio adds she's moving back to New Hampshire to "pay penance." That's right, first pay the landlord and then pay penance.
