Clive (Cat)

Kate Beckinsale used to have a rescued Persian cat named Clive, who was also a cancer survivor. You could usually spot this big fluff ball looking unimpressed on Kate’s Instagram, usually because he’s being dressed up in embarrassing costumes. Clive passed away in June 2023 at around 15 or 16 years old (You can read our tribute to Clive here)

Clive has died . I don’t have it in me to make a montage or even look at pictures of him yet . Every single part of my house feels like he should be in it . If anyone is expecting to hear from me , you may not for a bit and I’m sorry .My heart is absolutely and totally broken.

Wabbit (Cat)

Kate had a cat that sadly went missing at her Los Angeles home in 2012. While on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, she told the story of how she hired two “pet detectives” for $1,000 to find Wabbit. She said all they did was clog up her bathroom and said her cat was most likely eaten by coyotes. They also found poop, claimed it was her cat and they would analyze it (for more money).

Childhood Dog (Dog)
