The internet woke to sad news today: Bento, better known as Keyboard Cat, has passed away at the age of 8. The chubby orange Tabby stole hearts after taking the place of “older brother” and OG Keyboard Cat Fatso. While Fatso starred in the original, viral Keyboard cat numbers, it wasn’t long before Bento had starred in dozens more meme-worthy videos. We’ve put together a list of Bento’s finest work – be sure to check out the tribute. It boasts some serious gems. Don’t forget the tissues.
Fatso, the first Keyboard Cat.

I used to think it was terrible that there was a new Keyboard Cat but now I get that itâ€™s more of a Dalai Lama kind of thing.
