It’s a tragic week in the kingdom of Caturday. Our regal leader Colonel Meow died on Wednesday and the world may never recover. At just two years old, the street to stardom cat raked in countless accolades, including a Guinness World Record for “longest cat hair” and enough Instagram followers to populate the entire city of Savannah (and then some).
The Colonel flirted with death back in November, but pulled through and was dubbed Miracle Meow. His faithful minions (online fans) donated more than $20,000 for his medical care then and are no doubt devastated to see him pass now.
Ralph, Weaz and Tilly are mourning Meow’s death but continue to celebrate his legacy.
Like my entire cast of Caturday, the resilient leader of the feline world was also rescued off the streets and his story continues to give hope to homeless cats (and crazy cat moms) everywhere.

Rest in peace, Colonel Meow. You are a gentleman and a scholar. We love you.
If you think I didn’t cry watching this, you are wrong.
