If you happen to seen a beautiful young redhead walking a cat on a leash, it just might be Bella Thorne.

Yup, the Shake It Up star walks her new kitty, Louis V. (as in Louis Vuitton), around her neighborhood.

"I walk him on a leash—I'm one of those people," Bella told me while promoting her participation in this year's Red Dress Collection runway show at New York's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. "He's learned to like the leash. People don't look at me like I'm crazy, but I haven't taken him to the Grove [L.A.'s popular outdoor mall] yet."


Bella adopted Louis late last year when he was among a handful of cats used for a photo shoot for her new Candie's campaign.

"They were all rescues and I saw Louis and I looked at my mother and I gave her this look," Bella said. "She was like, 'Another one, Bella?'"

They already had a dog and four cats at home.

"My mom loves Louis now," Bella said. "He's like a dog. He's always like, Please, love me. He runs when you call his name and also when I come home, he comes straight to me and follows me to my room."

Bella, along with Kat Graham, Ireland Baldwin, Leona Lewis, Taryn Manning, NeNe Leakes and E! News' own Alicia Quarles, will be among the celebs wearing scarlet-hued dresses when they walk in the Red Dress Collection show on Feb. 6 as a kick off to Fashion Week.

Presented by Macy's and Subway restaurants, this year's show is a collaboration between The American Heart Association's Go Red for Women movement and the National Heart, Blood and Lung Institute's The Heart Truth awareness campaign.
