Actress Busy Philipps has been left heartbroken after her family's beloved cat passed away.
The Cougar Town's pet Verdelle underwent surgery but failed to make it through and sadly died on Sunday (21Aug11).
The family held a burial in the back yard of its home in Los Angeles, and the grief-stricken actress has taken to her Twitter.com page to tell fans of her sadness.
She writes, "Sad day in our house. Our kitty Verdelle passed away this morning from complications from her surgery. 1998-2011 She was a great friend...
"We got to bury her in the front yard. Guys, I'm SO sad. Trying to keep it together for my kid. They were buddies. Thank you for all your words of sympathy and empathy. This afternoon, (daughter) Birdie and I made a garden stone for Verdelle."
