Kat Von D Loses House & Cat in Fire

Poor Kat Von D! The lovely tattoo artist just lost a ton of her possessions, including her beloved hairless cat Valentine, when a fire ripped through her house over the weekend.

Kat tweeted the news that she had lost her cat yesterday, "R.I.P. my little Valentine." Today she explained what happened, "My house burned down last night with my cat inside. Finally get to sleep away the remainder of today. Hope tomorrow is gentler." She also posted a pic of herself standing amidst the charred remains of her house.

Von D, who has been dating Jesse James since the summer and just released a new book chronicling her tattooing experiences over the last year, is traumatized but seems to be trying to keep the experience in perspective. "In order to gain everything, you must lose everything," the L.A. Ink star wrote.

We wish Kat the best of luck rebuilding her home.
