A sad sad day.
The famous Tunch, John Cole's very fat kitteh and mascot of the Balloon Juice blog, has been killed.
Here is the thread: RIP, Tunch, The Best Cat Ever
UPDATE: Here is the link to MARC. John Cole is asking for donations there in honor of Tunch. It's a great pet rescue group.
This comes after getting confirmation earlier today that the great Balloon Juice commenter, General Stuck, indeed has passed away.
Here is his memorial thread: RIP, General Stuck
A terrible day on the internet.
I loved them both.
UPDATE: John has posted a Thank You thread.
I think he will like knowing that Tunch made the rec list on DKos.
Tunch truly was a marvelous, sweet and loving cat.
