Sharon Osbourne’s missing cat has come home. On Friday, the former “X-Factor” judge announced the return of her black cat, Momo, on Instagram.
“Momo is back home! Thank you all for your kind words and advice, it meant the world to me!!!!!,” she wrote in the caption alongside a heart and prayer symbol emoji. In the post, a relieved Osbourne included a picture of the adorable all-black cat with rainbow text that read, “She’s Home!!!!”
Earlier on Friday, the former co-host from “The Talk” revealed that her beloved Scottish Fold “has been missing for 3 days,” and was pleading for help, asking those who may have seen the cat around Los Angeles’ Larchmont neighborhood to contact her via through social media.
She also shared photos of her cat and wrote on Instagram, “Praying my baby Momo is safe and ok. Please repost if you can & help me bring Momo home.” She added, “She is chipped but does not wear a collar. She is VERY friendly & cuddly but not street smart. She is an indoor cat.”
Sharon Osbourne Received Messages of Hope From Former Co-Workers
In the comments section, her friends and followers offered her an outpouring of love — including her friend and former colleague from “The Talk,” Amanda Kloots. “Oh! I have a friend near the area too I will alert her!” Kloots wrote. “So sorry Mrs!!”
In addition, Carrie Ann Inaba also left Osbourne a message of hope. “Do not give up,” she commented. “My moms cat was hiding from her for months.. and she was nearby… we eventually found her. Leave out food and water…. and call out to her on evening walks.” She also added, “Sending you so much love…. I’m so sorry…keep the faith.”
Despite the well-wishes from her former co-workers, tensions are still tunning high for Osbourne and “The Talk’s” Sherly Underwood. The two engaged in a heated exchange on the March 10 episode, in which Osbourne defended Piers Morgan’s disparaging comments about Meghan Markle and her Oprah Winfrey interview. After the on-air argument, Osbourne left the show.
In a statement about Osbourne’s exit from the show, CBS said that her behavior “did not align with our values.” However, Osbourne broke her silence on the issue when she appeared on “Real Time with Bill Maher.” During the interview, she told Maher, “I’m angry, I’m hurt.” She added, “I’ve been called so many things in my life… but a racist is one thing I will not take,” she said. In the wake of her departure, some of her former co-hosts alleged that Osbourne showed a pattern of racist and homophobic behavior.
Osbourne has vehemently denied the claims. “I don’t even use those words,” she told Maher. “They’re not in my vocabulary.”
