The internet mourns the passing of a famously funny feline that finally made its way to that “great big cardboard box in the sky.”

Longcat, credited by meme experts as one of the most recognized kitties on cyberspace, has reportedly died.

Longcat, also known by its real name Shiroi – meaning white in Japanese – was an internet sensation known for its peculiarly elongated body. The feline was famed for the many altered pictures depicting its silly length, which when picked up, is said to be around 65 centimeters from head to toe.

Longcat memes apparently appeared in the early 2000s and had become popular enough even to have its name etched in the Urban Dictionary for its exceptional length.
