Gigi Hadid mourns death of cat

Model Gigi Hadid is mourning the death of her pet cat.

The runway beauty took to social media on Sunday (20Mar16) to share the sad news with fans, while she reminisced about her good times with the ginger puss she named Chub, posting a couple of photos in his memory.

One sweet snap featured Gigi lying on a bed, smiling into the camera as she cuddles her furry friend, while boyfriend Zayn Malik plants a big kiss on her cheek. According to People.com, the image is likely to be months old as the former One Direction singer is pictured with his blond-tinged floppy locks, which he has since had cut off.

"We love you always chub," Gigi captioned the Instagram photo. She also added emojis of a frowning face, an angel, and a cat.

Another image, taken in black and white, showed Chub relaxing on a bed with another of her cats.

"Brothaas (sic)," she wrote beside the second snap, which she posted on Twitter.

Chub has featured in a number of Gigi's social media posts in recent months and it appears he also took a liking to Zayn, who the 20-year-old model began dating in November (15).

One of Gigi's earlier Instagram photos featured the British pop star cuddling with the cute kitty, and the beauty simply captioned the sweet image with a heart emoji.

The couple went public with its relationship just weeks after Gigi split from Joe Jonas. At the time, Zayn was also newly-single as he called off his engagement to Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards in August (15).

The singer then took their relationship to the next level by recruiting Gigi to star as his love interest in the steamy video for his debut single, Pillowtalk.
