Today is International Cat Day, a fun day of light-hearted celebration for cat lovers across the globe, but for deadmau5, today is a bad day. The producer posted a sad message on social media yesterday, sharing the unfortunate news that his cat, Meowingtons, will be crossing the rainbow bridge today due to some medical issues.
The artist states Meowingtons has been his best friend for 16 years, and he plans to take a little break to help him navigate the loss. The cat has touched the lives of many in ‘stupid ways’, says deadmau5, which is why he’s sharing something he would normally work through personally on a public level.
Deadmau5 has a couple of shows scheduled for this weekend, including Osisko en Lumière Festival and ileSoniq Festival in Canada. Time will tell if he moves forward with these performances or not.
As many know, the loss of a pet is an extremely painful experience. We are thinking of you today deadmau5. Take all the time you need to grieve Meowingtons.
