Surely you've noticed while enjoying The Voice this season that Cee Lo Green rarely goes anywhere alone.

That "Crazy" dude's got a cat!

But just where did that cuddly ball of white fur resting under Dr. Evil, no…Dr. Claw, um, wait…Blofield, hang on…Cee Lo's arm come from?

"Purrfect is a rented cat that happens to be a rescue," a source tells E! News.

"It was Cee Lo's idea to have a cat this season; however, due to his travel schedule, he is not able to care for an animal full-time. Cee Lo liked the idea of working with a rescue as he loves animals."

Also, we're told, Purrfect, who lives with Benay Karp, owner of Benay's Bird & Animal Rental, "tweets from her iPawd" and has a Facebook page.

Among the feline's interests: "Fish, diamonds, cashmere," and she lists her location as "@ceelogreen's lap."

Good grief, that's cute!

NBC had no comment as to what Purrfect's per diem is, but one report pegged it at $350 a day, including $45 an hour for her trainers. The money goes toward her long-term care and maintaining her lifestyle once she has retired from showbiz.
