Though she’s had to defend her marriage to Russell Brand recently, there’s one companion in Katy Perry’s life who has always been a constant – her cat, Kitty Purry.

“Reunited and it feels so good,” she Tweeted Tuesday, posting a photo of her and her beloved feline taking a cat nap.

The cheeky star even took a moment to playfully challenge celeb BFF Taylor Swift, who has been similarly sharing photos of her new kitten.

“Take that [Taylor Swift] and Meredith!” Perry wrote.
