Katy Perry 'obsessed' with her pet cats

Wednesday, 23rd March 2011

Katy Perry may well buy high-quality cat food and a host of cat scratch posts for her kitties as the signer has revealed she is "obsessed" with them.

Ms Perry has three cats - named Kitty Purry, Morrissey and Krusty - and the singer has explained that she sees similarities between herself and her feline friends.

She said: "I am obsessed with cats … Cats are like, 'You have to earn my affection'. And I really associate myself with that. People have to earn my affection, but when I give it, it's going to be good.

"I'm very independent like a cat too, and I do things in my own time. My cats have a feminine way, it's sexy."

The I Kissed a Girl singer also revealed that there are a number of songs inspired by her cats on her album and that her single Teenage Dreams referenced kitties.

She added that her aim is to "make that cat-lady personality cool".
