UNITED KINGDOM – The star was completely devastated when her senior cat, Persian pedigree Pebbles, died recently at the age of 16 and was horrified when her new pet disappeared.
Singer Susan Boyle was found literally screaming in the middle of the street at midnight after her new cat ran away.
Her beloved pet even came to visit her when Ms. Boyle was being treated at The Priory.
And while performing on the talent show back in 2009, she reportedly borrowed a fellow contestant’s mobile phone in order to talk to her beloved Persian pedigree.
Susan inherited the cat from her late mother, explaining in an interview: “My mother said, ‘Look after my house and look after my cat Pebbles’, and that’s what I did.”
But the 16-year-old brown and white cat passed away recently due to old age – prompting Susan, who is now 55, to replace him with a new cat.
But Susan was spotted screaming in panic this week when his replacement cat ran away.
And a spokesperson for Susan did confirm: “As any pet owner knows, there is nothing worse than the panic when your pet goes missing, even for just a few minutes.
“Susan was upset after her cat ran out of the front door because it’s a house cat and she was worried about its safety. The cat was eventually found and is back home in the lap of luxury”
A neighbor of the star stated: “The screaming and shouting was awful – it was very alarming, and a number of people headed outside to see what had caused her upset.
“You don’t expect to hear screaming in the street after midnight, so it came as a real shock – and of course the fact that it was Susan attracted even more attention.
“It took a few people the best part of an hour to convince her to relax. She gets emotional quite quickly – but she’s a lovely woman really.
“If it had been anyone else people might have been more angry about the noise – but of course we try to be understanding when it’s Susan.”
Susan has in the past struggled to control her emotions in public due to her Asperger’s syndrome, which recently saw her panic-stricken at airports in both Belfast and London.
But sources insist this latest incident was unrelated to her condition – and came purely from fears that the cat could be lost or hit by a car.
