Accompanying Katherine Heigl to her guest appearance on The View this week were a group of very cute kittens! The cats, all of whom are currently available for adoption from Main Line Animal Rescue group, illustrated the importance of a special partnership between Katherine’s animal welfare organization, the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation and Cat’s Pride.

During the April 20th episode, Katherine discussed the partnership which supports her Foundation’s fight against animal cruelty and abuse and will help save lives of thousands of shelter animals. She also spoke about teaming up with her husband Josh Kelley to direct and star in his new music video "It’s Your Move".

Host Raven-Symonè had a surprise waiting for Katherine during the show, revealing a special video message from a fan she once went to a ball with at West Point almost 20 years ago. The View had tracked down the former cadet after spotting a throwback photo Katherine had posted on social media from the 1997 event.

Katherine’s new hairstyle was also a hot topic of conversation and she explained to the audience why she had to cut her long locks.
