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.
