Kat Von D's Cat Dies in House Fire

11/22/2010 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kat Von D suffered two devastating losses at the same time this weekend -- when a fire ripped through her home in the Hollywood Hills ... taking the life of her beloved cat Valentine in the process.

Kat Von D's Cat Dies
Sources tell TMZ the house fire call came in at 11:23 PM on Saturday night -- and six fire trucks and two ambulances responded. It's unclear if Kat was home at the time. We're told it took 30 minutes to extinguish the flames.

Kat tweeted the heartbreaking news about Valentine early this morning, saying, "my house burned down last night with my cat inside."

Kat later tweeted a picture of her charred home (above left) saying, "In order to gain everything, you must lose everything" -- followed by a pic of her cat (right) with the text "R.I.P. My little Valentine." 

Calls to Kat's rep have not been returned.

bubbles- you should have some compassion for people when they lose something close to them, not be an a$$ and a heartless jerk.

I bet it was her mantle full of candles that caught her home on fire. Let's see if her insurance will cover her gross misuse and negligence of candles everywhere. Or will she blame a faulty toaster so she doesn't have to blame herself. Poor Valentine...

Why do so many of you have nothing else to do in your life but to be hateful. GO away and crawl back under your rock! Or get a life of your own, hopefully positive.

I'm sure it had nothing to do with the 47,000 candles she keeps lit in her house...
