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.

Get over it people. It's just a fkn cat (and an ugly one at that).. All cats should be secured in pillow cases and thrown into a lake.. Kittens should be hit over the head with a rock when they are born.

The poor cat nearly died in November and unbelievably people donated almost $22,000 for this cat's care. In spite of the cat having a bad heart this owner dragged this cat all over town for 'personal appearances' - who knows what kind of follow up care was provided. Lawd knows - she could afford it - sheesh! 2 months later the cat is dead. Cats with heart disease should be kept from stress - big duh, huh? She can give an interview to TMZ, but do you think she can tell the crazy facebook fans? Oh, helllllllll no! Sick...
