Shilpa Shetty just lost her pet cat Simba. And itâ€™s not an easy thing to accept for her. â€œItâ€™s very hard for those who donâ€™t have pets to understand what losing one means. People have been insensitive enough to actually laugh when I say I lost a dear member of my family. Weâ€™ve several cats in our home. But each one is special.â€
Simbaâ€™s death was kept away from Shilpa while she was shooting in Kuala Lampur last week. â€œMy family didnâ€™t tell me about it. I came back to â€¦this. The good part is that Simba didnâ€™t have to suffer. Some time ago he had a renal failure and was in a lot of pain. This time he went peacefullyâ€¦In any case cats live for 16-18 years maximum . He went in 12 years. No point in getting so attached to them when you know theyâ€™ll go in no time.â€
The impending going away of Jade Goody is also a big bother for the ex-Big Brother contestant.
More so now when Jade has come out with some scathing comments against Shilpa in her autobiography.
But Shilpa holds no illwill. â€œSomeone told me about these remarks. And then I read them on the net. But I donâ€™t hold these remarks against Jade. The autobiography was obviously completed months ago. Today the circumstances have changed dramatically for Jade. She canâ€™t afford to hold grudges in her heart. None of us can.Life is too short and unpredictable.â€
