Kat Von D's life went up in smoke over the weekend.

The tattoo artist, 28, is currently mourning the loss of her hairless cat, Valentine, whom she lost in a house fire. "R.I.P. my little Valentine," she tweeted.

"My house burned down last night with my cat inside," Von D, who has been dating Jesse James since August, explained early Monday morning. "Finally get to sleep away the remainder of today. Hope tomorrow is gentler."

Von D, whose real name is Katherine von Drachenberg, then tweeted a photo of herself surrounded by the charred remains of her home.

"In order to gain everything, you must lose everything," the "L.A. Ink" star wrote.
