RIP Colonel Meow: A Legend Takes His Final Bow

Friends. It breaks my heart to report this, but Colonel Meow has passed into the great white catnip field beyond this realm.

From the master of all cats' Facebook page:

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. -Slave Beast

Tonight, whether we be Team Dog or Team Cat, let us all lay down our armaments and pause for a moment of heartfelt reflection.

We were with him from the beginning. The entire Jezebel staff is devastated. He came so close to world domination. Our cat overlords today mourn a great leader. Only one way to send out a legend, folks. Take it away, Boys II Men:

Please, let us all remember him and his evil deeds now through your gifs, YouTube video clips and memes stolen from Buzzfeed and/or Reddit in the comments below. Let the memorial begin now.
