Colonel Meow

Death Caused By Heart

Cat-astrophy

EXCLUSIVE

0131-colonel-meow-gettyInternet sensation Colonel Meow died of CARDIAC ARREST ... triggered while valiantly trying to fight off a kidney infection ... TMZ has learned.

The Colonel's owner Anne Marie Avery tells us ... Meow was rushed to a hospital last week after he started breathing heavily -- and docs quickly realized his kidneys were failing because of an infection.

Colonel fought like cats and dogs for a week ... but stress eventually got the best of him.

Avery plans to create a charity in the Colonel's honor -- and she's already got the support of Grumpy Cat and Keyboard Cat.

So Keyboard Cat is onboard? You know that video was made in 1984 and he died in 1987 right?

I swear Colonel Meow was the only celebrity worth following these days. He was so devilishly adorable. You will be greatly missed, oh wise one. Your minions will never forget you.
