In the series, Che Diaz (Sara Ramirez) adopted Shoe after working at a veterinary surgery – with a shocked Carrie later taking the kitten into her apartment, and later new townhouse.
Posting snaps of her kitten – who was adopted from the Connecticut Human Society, SJP revealed his new name, writing: ‘His off-camera name is Lotus.
‘He and his siblings were all given botanical names when they were rescued as newborns by the @cthumanesociety.
‘Adopted officially by the Parker/Broderick family in April 2023. He joins Rémy and Smila who we adopted in May 2022.
‘If he looks familiar, that’s because he is.’
The star also posted snaps of Lotus settling in with his feline siblings, being kissed by the star and relaxing at home in New York City.
The post comes after Cattrall shocked fans of Sex and the City and And Just Like That… in late May when it was reported she filmed a secret cameo in mid-March, which she did without interacting with any cast member.
And Just Like That… was first announced in January 2021, with Cattrall’s absence raising eyebrows among fans immediately, with Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie Bradshaw), Kristin Davis (Charlotte York) and Cynthia Nixon (Miranda Hobbes) reprising their iconic roles.
It was explained in the series premiere that Samantha had moved to London, with the Season 1 premiere finding Carrie reaching out to Samantha via text, making plans to meet in person and reconcile.
Samantha’s return came in the form of a phone call to Carrie which happened very early on in the season finale.
Carrie arrives home, on the phone with Aiden (John Corbett), checking in on him after he rushed back to Virginia after hearing his son Wyatt (Logan Souza) was injured.
After talking to her cat, Carrie gets a call from Samantha, who tells her that he flight is three hours delayed, adding, ‘I won’t be able to make it there in time.’
A confused Carrie asks, ‘In time for what?’ Samantha responds, ‘The last supper,’ referring to the last meal Carrie has planned in her longtime apartment.
Samantha adds, ‘Miranda and Charlotte told me all about it. I was gonna surprise you,’ which certainly pleases Carrie.
‘Oh my gosh, well you did, I’m very surprised,’ Carrie says, as Samantha adds, ‘Well the fog finally lifted out, but the crew? Maxed out. Oh I am f***ing furious.’
Carrie insists, ‘We’ll just get together tomorrow,’ though Samantha adds, ‘Honey, I just left Heathrow. I was flying back on the first flight in the morning.
A confused Carrie asks, ‘Wait a minute, you were flying all the way to New York for an overnight?’
Samantha adds, ‘Well it is your apartment, and I have to pay my respects,’ before asking Carrie to put her on speaker and hold up that phone.
She holds up the phone to the apartment, as Samantha gushes, ‘Thank you for everything, you f***ing fabulous, fabulous flat,’ as Carrie can’t help but laugh.
Carrie asks if Samantha has a British accent now that she lives in London, as Samantha responds, ‘Who’s Samantha? This is Annabelle Bronstein. I’m from “Injah,’ as Carrie laughs.
Samantha concludes, ‘Ta and cheerio… and have a great night,’ as Carrie says, ‘Ta… bye,’ as Samantha hangs up the phone and smiles while being driven home from the airport.
