A self-proclaimed animal lover, Stewart once revealed she owned "at least 20 cats, 25 dogs, 10 chinchillas, scores of canaries and parakeets, two ponies, three donkeys, 10 horses, many sheep and goats, hundreds of chickens, geese, turkeys, guinea fowl, quail, peacocks, and homing pigeons."

Earlier this year, Stewart lost one of her cats in an unfortunate incident involving her dogs.

In an Instagram post featuring men digging a hole in the ground to prepare for her cat's grave, Stewart, 80, wrote in the caption, "burying the beautiful and unusual Princess Peony."

"The four dogs mistook her for an interloper and killed her defenseless little self," she explained. "I will miss her very badly. RIP beauty."

Stewart also posted a sweet picture of her cat to remember her furry friend, telling her followers, "This was the Princess Peony."

Last year, during an interview with the TODAY show, she shared that she turned to her animals for comfort.

"There are waiting lists for pets because people really did figure out that house pets are a great comfort, a great addition to the household," Stewart said.
