Emma Freud has revealed her ‘idiot’ pet cat has used a designer handbag – made by a brand liked by Meghan Markle – as a chewy toy, rendering the luxury accessory unusable.
The television personality, who is married to Love Actually and Yesterday writer Richard Curtis, told her 186,000 followers on Twitter this morning what the mischievous moggy had been up to.
The news that the long-haired smokey-grey feline had bitten through the strap on the new ‘Emma’ Charlotte Elizabeth handbag, worth £490, marks another week of feline woes for the Curtis/Freud household.

Last week, Freud revealed that she’d had to fetch her cat from an hour away after a well-intentioned stranger had assumed the collarless pussy was a stray and taken it to a veterinary hospital in London’s Potters Bar.
She wrote on Twitter at the time: ‘Dear person who picked up a cat from our doorstep last night and handed him into a Vet’s hospital an hour away in Potter’s Bar…. thank you very much for being concerned but he is fine. He had just slipped his collar off…. is reunited now with his tortoise pal at home.’

‘She coped by designing bags from her bedroom. Then Meghan got one and her business went viral. Just bought her new design and love it.’
Meghan wore the £175 chestnut ‘Bloomsbury’ bag by the British designer during a visit to Northern Ireland in March 2018.

Shortly after the photo of Freud clutching the stylish bag came another photo, showing the handle gnawed completely through.
This time she tweeted: ‘Sadly the IDIOT cat mistook gorgeous new handbag for tasty chewy toy.’
On Twitter, one user referenced the previous week’s drama. @outofafrica73 wrote: ‘How sharp are his teeth! He is upset didn’t like Potters Bar.’
Freud responded: ‘You are sooooo wise.’
User @Wadge locked up her own bags, writing: ‘NOOOOOOO ! i’m currently hiding multiple bags from my cats I didn’t even know it was a thing ? I’m shuddering.’
In July, Freud invited a US film fan to tea, after she had decided on a whim to celebrate her 50th birthday by flying to the UK seaside hotel that featured in the film Yesterday.
Dawn Walker, 50, from Seattle, made the 5,000-mile trip to the ‘cute’ Norfolk town of Gorleston after she fell in love with it while watching the Beatles-inspired romantic comedy with her husband.
The mother-of-two, who works for Alaska Airlines, decided to mark her milestone birthday acting impulsively, and before she knew it found herself enjoying a classic English seaside break, after booking a stand-by flight to Heathrow and buying a £24 National Express bus ticket to get her to the country’s east coast.
The historic hotel is a ‘100 times better’ than Walker imagined, she said. All of the cast stayed at the property for six weeks during filming last summer and bændelorm kat pop star Ed Sheeran even attended the film’s launch party at the hotel
