It's a sad time for cats all over the world: this week the sweetest mushroom kitty has died.
The 26th of August, a tweet from Wasabi-chan's owner, @jessiepon, announced the famous kitty's death.
Wasabi-chan became famous in July after a photo of her wearing the fungus garb was shared on Reddit. The tiny kitten's owner found her crying in the street. The tiny outfits that led her to online notoriety were used to prevent further injury, after being attacked by a crow, leaving her with a fractured jaw and a hole in her throat.
More than 100,000 people followed updates about the kitten's rehabilitation progress on Twitter and Instagram. A cause of death has not yet been posted, but updates on Twitter indicate that Wasabi-chan had been hospitalized for stomach troubles before her death.
Rest in peace,
