Kat Von D’s Hollywood Hill’s home was involved in a blazing fire Saturday night, November 20, 2010. There were six fire trucks and two ambulances that reportedly responded to the call. It was unclear if Kat was home at the time of the fire.
Kat tweeted the information along with photos. She not only lost her home but tweeted that “my house burned down last night with my cat inside.” Her beloved cat, Valentine, died in the tragedy. Kat later tweeted “In order to gain everything, you must lose everything. R.I.P. My little Valentine.”
The photo that was tweeted showed the cat as being, in my opinion, a Sphinx. Sphinxes are a hairless breed of cat first developed in 1966. They are known to be a very extroverted, high of energy, and very curious type of cat. Sphinxes are sometimes described as hypoallergenic because of their lack of fur.
Pets are part of the family and I’m sure Valentine was no exception. Thanksgiving week will be an especially thoughtful one for Kat. May we all remember what we are thankful for every day.
