R.I.P. Colonel Meow

Colonel Meow, the fierce-looking fluffy Persian/Himalayan cat who took the internet by storm in the fall of 2012, passed away on Wednesday evening. No cause of death was given.  

Colonel Meow held the Guinness World Record for the longest cat hair, with parts of his coat reaching nine inches long. His online persona was a Scotch-loving cat who pursued world domination. His fans are called “Minions.” Spokesmen for fellow internet stars Grumpy Cat and Lil Bub have expressed their condolences online. Colonel Meow was two years old. -via Buzzfeed

Presumably it was related to his heart surgery back in Nov/Dec.

Still, a rough loss. :( First Leader Otis and now my Colonel. #bethemiracle #RIPColonelMeow
