Bento the legend. RIP

Being inundated with shitty news has become part of life these days. Recently the world lost one of its purest souls – Bento the orange cat that rose to fame as a brilliant keyboarder and obvious Grammy snub.

According to The Spokesman-Review, Bento went up to cat heaven at the age of nine of March 8.

Bento became an internet sensation in 2009 when a video of him shredding on a keyboard went viral. He isn’t the original keyboard cat – that goes to Fatso who had the same human, Charlie Schmidt. However Bento, in the age of sharing and YouTube, became a star, appearing in a pistachio commercial, adoption commercials and doing the various cat conferences.

Check out the tribute video for him below. It was a shame he never got to see the festival stage or collab with any big names. It would have been a smart move on their part.
