Star Kitty's Revenge is the third studio album by American recording artist Joi, released on March 19, 2002, by Universal Records.

The album received generally positive reviews from music critics upon its release.[7] In The New Rolling Stone Album Guide (2004), Rolling Stone journalist Jon Caramanica writes that the album "reeked of the unique stank of Atlanta's Dungeon Family collective" and that "for all Kitty's raunch, Joi still takes the opportunity to flex her impressive, Betty Davis-style vocals on more traditional material.".[8]
