Paris Hilton's cat custody

Paris Hilton is embroiled in a custody battle over her cat.
The hotel heiress' pet feline Prada has been seized by animal rescue centre the Kris Kelly Foundation after Paris left the animal at the vets two weeks ago.
Kelly - who collected the cat after being contacted by the surgery - is refusing to return Prada, saying: "This is a clear-cut case of abandonment."
Kelly claims she has tried to contact Paris several times but none of her calls have been returned.
Paris adopted Prada from the foundation last May - a week before she was jailed for parole violations.
Despite being told on her release the cat needed neutering, the socialite only organised the procedure a few weeks ago.
Paris - who also has two Chihuahuas, a Rottweiler, ferret, goat, and a kinkajou - recently admitted her staff look after most of her animals.
She said: "I only take care of the two Chihuahuas because they live with me. The others are taken care of by a housekeeper."
Paris has been named the Worst Dog Owner of the Year for treating her pets like fashion accessories.
