Bento (who was best known as Keyboard Cat) died at the age of nine. The ginger tabby’s passing was confirmed by his owner, Charlie Schmidt, on Friday via a YouTube tribute video (above). So sad.
Bento was adopted by Schmidt in 2009, after his original “Keyboard Cat” Fatso passed away. Nonetheless, Bento became a YouTube sensation in his own right. Not only did the feline have a slew of online hits, but he also starred in various commercials.
