For years Susan Boyle shared her life with her pet moggy Pebbles.
But since the Scottish singer sky-rocketed to fame, post Britain's Got Talent, the 11-year-old cat has been moved from the West Lothian home he grew up in (pictured).
The I Dreamed a Dream star has apparently only seen the cat, who features on her official merchandise, three times since last July due to work commitments.
A 76-year-old pensioner now takes care of the pet, after being asked to take her in by a member of Susan's management team.
