Sad news in the cat world just reached us: Colonel Meow, the Internet’s scowliest, fluffiest feline celebrity, has died of as-yet-unknown causes.

The Colonel’s resident Slave Beast, Anne Marie Avey, wrote on Facebook this afternoon,

"Colonel Meow passed away yesterday evening. I will post more about the details when I’ve had a few days to grieve. Thank you so much for your understanding, Minions. Your love and support has meant the world to us both."

Some of our favorite tributes on Catster’s Facebook page so far:

"Best scotch-swilling overlord anyone could ask for."

"RIP Colonel Meow …Take Charge at Rainbow Row."

"I’m gonna miss his over-abundant fur and bad-ass attitude. POUT."

"R.I.P sweet boy. Run, be free, and drink up."

We faithful Minions of the Colonel are all heartbroken. We’ll bring you more details as we get them; right now we’re raising glasses of Scotch in his honor.

Good night, sweet fluffy prince. And please leave your tributes in the comments.
