A few weeks ago, the world mourned the loss of Bento the Keyboard Cat who passed away at the age of 9. This kitty achieved global fame when it was recorded playing the piano in 2009. Bento has since starred in many commercials and even had his own merchandise line.
Charlie Schmidt confirmed that Bento passed away. However, what many people don’t know is that the original Keyboard Cat actually passed away before Bento’s videos went viral. Charlie’s previous cat Fatso was the one recorded playing the piano back in 2009. Shortly afterwards, Fatso passed away and Charlie found Bento in a rescue shelter.
