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.

This this shows how fake and scripted LA Ink has become, because in an episode this year Kat was crying because her cat was attacked by an animal and died, now come to find out the cat was perfectly fine, only to later really die in a fire... karma?

That was the other cat, Ludwig, who died previously. The cat who died in the fire was, according to TMZ, Valentine.

Karma may be a bitch but why did that poor innocent animal have to suffer for it? RIP Valentine, poor little kitty.

I'm not buying it. This seems to be staged to me. Not to mention, a rat-looking cat appears to be standing on a ouija board. Boys and girls, can you say insurance fraud?

I am a huge Kat Von D fan.....but I am a bigger fan of pets.....now before everyone starts hatin' on me......this is the 2nd cat in a very short time that have died in her care.....maybe it would be a good idea to wait 'til either she doesn't let them OUTSIDE to be eaten (like the first one) or she has less risk of starting a fire INSIDE. No doubt she loved them, but the odds just aren't that good, are they? OR OR OR.....maybe she could adopt an animal that Might be put to sleep from a shelter.......that way, any time the cat has with her will be time it might Not have had.....let all those High Dollar Kitties go to INDOOR home WITHOUT fire hazards! Ugh - I feel guilty just saying it....btw....who tweets FIRST thing in the am after such a devastating loss???? maybe I need to re-think my Kat Von D 'fanship'...hmmmmmmmmmmm

I went through this a little over 4 years ago. My house burnt to the ground while I was work. Lost my 3 dogs and everything I owned. Not a good feeling. Stay strong. You're right - you have to lose everything before gain everything. It surely put my priorities in order after that. People, stop being cruel. No need for it.
