Kate Beckinsale has shown a new tattoo in honour of her late pet.
The actress was heartbroken earlier this year when her favourite cat, Clive, died.
Kate posted a photo of herself holding her cat as she announced her tragic loss in June.
She wrote in full: ‘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.’
Kate has now attached a photograph of Clive to her arm as a method of keeping him close at all times.
The actress, 50, acknowledged that having the tattoo ‘helped’ her grieve.
Revealing the artwork on Instagram, she wrote: ‘This has really helped . Thank you so much, @_dr_woo_ 🖤’
The tattoo, which is on her forearm, portrays an eerie image of her beloved Clive surrounded by stars.
Fans and renowned acquaintances were quick to offer Kate their support in the comments section.
Michelle Visage wrote: ‘The heartbreak is so real. Sending love’.
Kat Dennings added: ‘I love it❤️’
‘One of the absolute worst hearbreaks in life is losing the pet who’s always by your side, but this is a beautiful way to keep him with you always. 💗’, a fan added.
‘My heart goes out to you.. Clive was a total star, Insta and IRL, and we were all lucky to have you document his distinguished feline excellence. It will hurt for a long while, and you should do whatever it takes to help you cope’, penned another.
Kate’s article comes just a few days after she wrote an open letter about bereavement and life.
She also mentioned that her mother had been admitted to the hospital.
Judy Loe has been undergoing intense therapy, however a distraught Kate refused to reveal any specifics.
‘Embrace joy,’ the Van Helsing actor captioned a sequence of photos of Clive, her mother, and her cat’s burial. Accept your grief. Put on feathers. Sing. Do something that makes you joyful, even if just for a moment. Combine loss, sickness, and fear with as much life, joy, and celebration as you can.
‘It doesn’t mean you are having some sort of crisis. It means you are choosing life, fiercely.
‘Be brave, and when you don’t feel brave, listen. Laugh hard, dance hard, cry hard, love hard with those you trust. Spread love when you can. Read. Stay in bed and cry when it’s from all sides and feels like an avalanche.’
‘Try not to be mean, or to take on others’ meanness. People can break. Be kind. Fight with everything you’ve got for your loved ones, and for your own spirit x’, she signed off.
Paris Hilton, Naomi Watts, and Chrishell Stause were among those who expressed their support.
