Katie Price has revealed her new pet – a hairless sphinx cat – despite a longstanding petition to ban her owning animals.
The newly single former glamour model posed with the kitten on her shoulder but didn’t address the sudden appearance of another animal in her life.
Along with the seven dogs that have died, she also lost a horse to road traffic and a depressed chameleon named Marvin to a broken heart.
Over 36,000 people have signed the Change petition which brands Pricey as ‘irresponsible’ that was started in 2020 after the death of her puppy.

Back in November, the I’m A Celeb star took in a black Labrador which a friend was unable to look after – taking her pet collection up to seven animals.
At the time she seemingly addressed the growing concern around her pet ownership as she quipped: ‘What difference is another one?’
The star currently owns Chihuahua Captain and Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix breed Batman, having previously slammed ‘fake’ claims that she had sold them online.
Katie’s other dogs include Chihuahuas Buddy and Colin and French Bulldog Precious.

In August, she adopted a new German Shephard named Tank after the death of her ‘protector’ Blade, who was hit by a car which Katie said was ‘devastating’.
The Big Brother star said she was devastated by the loss of Blade, who met the same fate as another dog, Sharon, just seven months before.
Her home faces the A24, which means multiple animals have escaped the home and ran straight onto a heavy traffic route – including Alsatian Sparkle who was hit in February 2020.
This echoed the death of her dog Queenie, who was killed in 2018 by passing cars on the same road.

However, the petition was started in 2020 not after Sparkle’s death but the tragic accident which saw French Bulldog puppy Rolo suffocate to death after becoming trapped in an electric armchair.
Along with the deaths, Katie was slammed for seeming to hit Tank while on a TikTok live within the first month of ownership as he growled and refused to settle.
Animal charity Peta previously told Metro.co.uk: ‘Short of shooting a puppy in the head on TikTok, there is almost nothing more Katie Price could do to cement the fact that she is an unfit dog guardian and an irresponsible person.’
Metro.co.uk has contacted representatives for Katie Price for comment.
