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).
