Along with other internet cat celebs such as Grumpy Cat and Lil Bub, Longcat sadly passed away on Sunday at the age of 18.
Longcat was known for his “epic length, spawning Photoshops, and even an entire mythology around his magnitude,” Know Your Meme said. Longcat was reported to be at 25.5 inches (65cm) from head to toe.
Longcat’s real name is Shiroi (which means white), but Japanese fans named it Nobiiru or Nobiko, which means “stretch.” He first became viral as a meme around 2005 or 2006.
Since then, he was photoshopped into business charts, outer space, and other unlikely places.
