Gigi Hadid said goodbye to a friend on Sunday.

Mourning the death of her cat Chub, Hadid posted a photo of herself cuddling with the feline and boyfriend Zayn Malik.

In the image, Hadid and Malik snuggled while she held tight to the orange cat. The British crooner planted a big smooch on the smiling model’s cheek. The photo appears to be an old one, as Malik’s hair is much shorter these days.

“We love you always chub,” Hadid, 20, wrote, accompanied by a frowning face, an angel emoji and a cat emoji.

Hadid also shared a photo of Chub and another one of her pets on Twitter, writing, “Brothaas.”

Malik seems to have bonded with Chub, and was photographed cuddling with the kitty in earlier photos posted by Hadid.

The couple have been dating since the end of last year and Hadid recently appeared in the music video for his first solo single, “Pillowtalk.”
