The real star of Hell's Kitty, Angel has worked with more icons of horror than any cat in history; and is likely the only feline in history to have ever gotten away with scratching Lee Meriwether. A method actor, she does all her own stunts and insists on being paid in tuna and treats. She inspired the Hell's Kitty franchise, serving as Tana's muse; sitting on his lap when he wrote the scripts. Regretfully, Angel passed away July 18, 2015 the same day fires engulfed several trucks and cars on the California freeway. Her fiery spirit will always be remembered; she has left an indelible mark upon the body (literally), and soul, of everyone who has had the privilege of working with her.
