Katie Price’s tragic pets’ lives as model faces animal ban petition

A petition calling for Katie Price to be banned from owning pets has received over 20,000 signatures so far.

The petition was launched last year after her pet bulldog Precious was found dead. Now she has been pictured with a tiny new puppy called Captain.

Precious wasn't the first pet of hers to meet a tragic ending and some people are furious about her history with pets.

She was recently seen galloping along on her horse with her pet chihuahua stuffed under her coat.

Katie is said to be "devastated" that people don't think she should be allowed to have pets and a rep of her told the Mirror that it was "incorrect" to say she was not an animal lover.

Here we take a look at some of the controversies Katie has had surrounding her pets.

Katie's pet chameleon dies of a broken heart

Katie is believed to have come to the conclusion that her pet chameleon died of a broken heart after her ex-husband Peter Andre moved out.

The lost lizard had to cope with Katie and Peter's two kids Princess and Junior moving out with him and one source believes the model thinks this was too much for the camouflaged chameleon.

A source told The Sun: "Marvin didn't go with Junior when he moved in with his dad over the summer – and now Katie thinks that the reptile has died of a broken heart.

"However, with all of her money troubles Katie has been unable to heat her mansion, and chameleons needs to be warm at all times."

Perhaps the reptile had taken Peter's Mysterious Girl lyrics literally when he sings "We can get closer now, and feel the warmth within".

Katie Price's puppy Rolo dies

In 2020, Katie's daughter Princess' beloved puppy Rolo died after getting stuck under an armchair.

The famous model turned into a temporary vet as she fought hard to resuscitate the French bulldog after finding him lifeless. She explained she was in another room while Bunny played with the dog in front of other responsible adults.

Katie said: "There was nothing they [the vets] could do, but they did say he wouldn't have died in pain, it was quick,"

Bunny is another of Katie's daughters and not another pet believed to be under threat.

Sparkle the Alsatian dies on the A24

Rolo was bought to comfort Princess with the pain of losing her beloved Alsatian, Sparkle.

Sparkle came a cropper thanks to the nearby A24 and was killed after a previous escape attempt ended in a near miss.

Announcing Sparkle's tragic death, Katie said: "Hey guys, really [expletive] off this morning. I’ve just woken up to realise that one of my dogs has been killed on the road.

"I’ve just checked with the neighbours and everything seems to be how it was when they left the dogs so I don’t know how they escaped but yeah, one of my Alsatians has been hit and killed.

"I was away last night with my PA and I left my neighbours to feed the dogs because that’s what they do when I’m not there."

Sparkle's half-sister Bear was thankfully recovered by a policeman on the dangerous road. Katie later rehomed the dog in April 2019.

Katie's horse and the A24

Sadly, Katie's horse also fell foul of the nearby death road after it escaped from a field in 2014.

The star was understandably heartbroken when images of her dead horse were shared online after it escaped and was struck by a motorist.

"Our friends other four horses thank god are alive with a couple of them injured and are still being treated by the vet and will be OK.”

It wasn't the first equestrian evil that had struck Katie during her bad luck with things with more than two legs.

She continued: "We are in shock still and reminds me again of the time in Argentina when I was involved in a horrific car accident when the car I was in killed two horses that died in my arms."

Katie's German Shepherd dies on the A24

Elsewhere on the A24 is the death site of German Shepherd Queenie, struck by a motorist in 2018.

She had been gifted the beautiful dog by ex-husband Kieran Hayler for her 38th birthday and alleged the horror incident was caught on camera and the pizza delivery man driving the car failed to stop.

She said: "I’m absolutely devastated, heartbroken my faithful loving family dog’s life Queenie has been shortened as she was killed by a heartless delivery driver who ran into our dog, seeing her struggle and drove off without telling us and left her to die."
