Life's not easy being a Martha and she's reportedly so lonely, she's been adopting cats for companionship, say sources.
The 67-year-old entrepreneur remains heartbroken over the death of her beloved dog and the marriage of her former boyfriend to a younger woman, reveal pals.
In a recent effort to fill the void, Martha adopted two Himalayan felines - which are named Sir Frost and Miss Snowflake - from a Long Island, N.Y. animal shelter.
That brings the total number of her pet cats to at least seven!
In a recent video, it shows Martha even dressed as a cat.
"Martha still cries over the passing last April of her famous 13-year-old chow chow Paw Paw," disclosed a friend. But now she's even began going around her property, which is huge, and spraying her territory.
"She also continues to be down in the dumps over her former boyfriend Charles' marriage last year to a beautiful young Swedish woman. Martha is lonely. With no man in her life, right now these cats are her companionship.
"We've kidded Martha that she's turning into a 'cat lady.' She even threw holiday-themed parties for her animals!
"We became more alarmed for her after had a huge litter box placed besides the normal ones."
On her show this past week, the lonely media mogul showed everyone how to make a scratch post with a log, a flat piece of particle board and old carpet scraps.
On December 28th, she threw a New Year's Eve party for her cats - dressing some in little gold-colored New Year's hats!
"She's even learned to purr if you rub her belly", stated the friend. "I've even seen her scratch her ear with her foot."
"Martha admits she's maybe gone a little overboard."
