Katy Perry, who relishes her role as a crazy cat lady, recently hired a Cat Whisperer to keep her cats in line while she’s on tour.
Perry had some difficulties when merging households with cat guy husband Charles Manson Russell Brand. Her cat, Kitty Purry, and Brand’s cat, Morrissey, didn’t exactly hit it off.
Like many cat owners in similar situations, they tried pheremone therapy.
“You drug them with this plug-in thing that releases pheromones, and it gets into their brains!” Brand said of the pet shop product, similar to Feliway, a synthetic version of the feline facial pheromone that helps reduce stress in cats. “It’s not like it’s illegal, and we just invented it! It makes the cats love each other more.”
The cats may be getting along better thanks to the pheromones, but it’s having a different effect on funnyman Brand. With his eyes wide, he said that the plug-in is “making me freak out! Last night, I was scratching the furniture, it’s driving me crazy!”
The pheromones helped, but when they added a new cat — Krusty (in photo above) — to the household, the bad behavior escalated. A Cat Whisperer seemed the only solution.
Perry told Us Weekly, “We hired a cat whisperer! He realigned their chakras and did some hypnosis. We were like, ‘Wow, this is extravagant!'”
