The cat's meow!

When Katy Perry announced last month that she was launching a second to-be-named fragrance, her fans began to purr with pleasure.

On Friday, the singer (and devoted cat aficionado) announced that the new scent will be called "Meow" -- the perfect pairing to her original perfume, "Purr," and will hit Nordstrom stores exclusively in mid-November for $45 and $65.

"It's a sister fragrance," she explained to Women's Wear Daily. "Purr to me was a little bit more floral, and Meow is a little bit more sweet. It was probably because of the California Dreams tour that it was more of the confectionary world, because everything I've seen for the last year has been like cotton-candy scented or huge peppermints or massive gummy bears."

Perry, 26, has had quite the busy year. In addition to her massive California Dreams tour, she starred as Smurfette in The Smurfs in 3D this summer.

But as far as what's next in beauty for the "Last Friday Night" singer, who already lends her name to OPI nail polish and the Proactiv skin-care line, she tells WWD that she's following in the footsteps of her A-list role model.

"I think [Gwen Stefani is] such a great example of a woman who puts out quality products associated with her name," said Perry. "That's because she's not shoving it down anyone's throats. She has great taste, great timing and she's got a cool style about her."
