Katy Perry has been making a lot of headlines recently, but for all of the good reasons - such as getting engaged and announcing her pregnancy.

But the terrible news has just come in that her iconic cat, Kitty Purry, has passed away.


This is Katy Perry: Singer, songwriter, and superstar.

She came on the scene in 2008 with the explosive (and controversial) hit, I Kissed A Girl. 

She's one of the most successful singers of our time.

Her 2015 Super Bowl half time show is thought to be the most-watched musical event ever.

Katy has had an unbelievable number of hit singles.

Even those totally out of touch with pop music could probably sing along to a few of her killer choruses.

Orlando Bloom is also kind of a big deal...

The English actor is one of the most instantly recognizable faces of fantasy, thanks to his role as Legolas in the Lord of the Rings franchise.

Orlando has been famous for a really long time...

And it was his role as Will Turner in 2003's Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is what really made him a household name.

Having said that, his career appears to have gone on to the back burner.

Orlando hasn't been in a movie since 2017 and he hasn't been seen on our screens for quite some time.

Although that could simply be a case of shifting priorities.

It seems that Orlando was simply focusing his attentions elsewhere - like on his romantic life, for instance.

But it took them a while to get to where they are now.

It wasn't until May of 2016 that Katy confirmed the two were officially dating.

She shared this snap of the pair lying down on some steps at the Cannes Film Festival. But, before this, their relationship was kept very hush-hush.

And, after a couple of relationship hiccups, they officially confirmed that they were officially together in April 2018.

That same month, Katy shared this amazing (yet slightly bizarre) picture of the couple meeting the Pope.

And last Valentine's Day, Orlando shared this cryptic message.

He didn't tag anyone in particular, but fans quickly suspected they knew exactly what it meant.

And Katy confirmed everyone's suspicions...

She shared this snap of the corner of the pair's faces, alongside multiple heart-shaped balloons and a truly stunning pink engagement ring... on Valentine's Day in 2019. Orlando shared the same picture, with the simple captions, "Lifetimes."

People were thrilled to hear the news...

And one die-hard fan pointed out that exactly one year ago, Katy had caught the bouquet at her own brother's wedding.

The couple are yet to tie the knot...

But, as of last month, they have something much more exciting to look forward to.

The couple are expecting their first child together!

And, in typical Katy Perry fashion, she revealed the exciting news in a rather unconventional way...

Through her new music video.

I know, it doesn't get any more A-list than that, does it?

Katy's new song, "Never Worn White" debuted earlier this year...

And the song, which will be a part of her fifth upcoming album, hints massively that the singer will be walking down the aisle very soon. The lyrics sing: "Cause I've never worn white. But I wanna get it right. Yeah, I really wanna try with you. No, I've never worn white. But I'm standin' here tonight. Cause I really wanna say 'I do'"

As the video draws to a close...

The singer can be seen clasping her hands around her stomach, which hadn't seemed any bigger throughout the full sequence.

And then, there we have it.

She suddenly stands to a side and reveals her small bump, which she cradles delicately.

And, shortly after the debut, Katy shared a clip of the video on her Instagram, with the cryptic caption:

"Let’s just say it’s gonna be a jam-packed summer..."

She then addressed her pregnancy in an Instagram Live stream...

"I'm excited," she said, "We're excited and happy and it's probably the longest secret I've ever had to keep."

But everyone's asking the same thing...

How did she hide her pregnancy for so long?

Katy has never been one to wear frumpy, over-sized clothes...

So how didn't we notice her bump?

Well, she revealed her tactic...

And it's a pretty simple one! Referring to the paparazzi shots taken in the last couple of weeks, she wrote: "omg so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore."

And as for whether it's a boy or a girl?

Well, the couple have confirmed it in a typically out-there way - through a pink-icing-smeared selfie, of course!

We're sure that the power couple are steadily preparing for the arrival of their daughter...

But some sad news has just come in that has broken the string of good news in Katy's life recently.

Her iconic cat, Kitty Purry, has sadly passed away.

Katy has had her beloved cat for fifteen years and, as all pet owners can relate, an animal well and truly becomes a part of the family; so this must be a very difficult time for the singer.

Katy posted these sweet throwback pictures to her Instagram account...

She wrote: "Kitty Purry crawled through my then-boyfriend’s window fifteen years ago, fully pregnant and seeking shelter. Two litters and many moons later, this street cat became a lovable mascot to many. Sadly, Kitty completed her 9th life last night. I hope she rests in salmon fillets and tuna tartare way up in catnip heaven. Kitty, thanks for the cuddles and companionship along the way. Big thanks to my brother David and @garethwalters for being great co-parents."

Fans, who are all familiar with Kitty, have been sending in their good wishes to the singer...

"This makes me so sad," one person wrote, with another commenting: "I’m so sorry to hear that, RIP Kitty Purry."

Rest in Peace, Kitty!

We send our condolences to Katy during this difficult time.
