Amerikatt's passing: The end of an era!

It is with great sadness that I announce the demise of the real-world inspiration for Amerikatt!

She passed away around 10:15 a.m. (CST) this morning, fighting valiantly to the last moments.

Having defeated giant robots and fought alien invasions to a standstill, she fell at last to old age. She was 18 (88 in human years; accordingly, not just a Senior kitty, but a SUPER Senior)!

"The World's Mightiest Moggie" joins the roster of super critters in the heavenly Hall of Justice!

Timmy the Tabby Terror, mob boss and her former sidekick (once known as Timmy Terrific) said of his mentor, "What a dame!"

Coming SOON, the mega-event, "Funeral for a Feline!"

Sounds like the girl led a great life. Many balls of yarn in her memory. I hope you will be able to have a personal puss in the game to keep your hero (or villain) company.


I like to take your ideas and supersize them. This isn't criticism, it is flattery. I come with nothing but good will and a spirit of team-building. If you take what I write any other way, that is probably just because I wasn't very clear.

Thanks for your kind words,

Thanks for your kind words, Huckleberry!

Amerikatt had a great run in City of Heroes. If City of Titans allows feline meshes, perhaps she (or an homage character) may protect the skies. If not, perhaps it will be the story of how Katt's human sidekick -- now grown -- carries on AK's legacy and deals with the personal loss of "The World's Mightiest Moggie"!

You are the best chronicler

You are the best chronicler of Feline Heroism! I know that Amerikatt will have more audacious adventures in the next realm. Please don't let this sad phase cause you to hermit-up, but continue to enjoy the freedom of our skies. I appreciate you, and Amerikatt too!

Be Well!

I second that statement. Sorry to hear about your cat, Amerikatt.. (My wife and I lost one of our older dogs just last year, so I remember how it feels.)

Wandering the streets of

Wandering the streets of Titan City, we see paw prints leading into an alley. If we follow the prints, they lead us into a small square, in the center is a small statue of a cat. "Here lies Amerikatt. Hero to felines around the 'verse, Enemy to purveyors of Katnip". On the ground is a bottle of AKC (unopened) and scattered cat treats and toys. Somebody obviously maintains this site.

Many years ago my cat passed suddenly and unexpectedly it was terribly traumatic. I am thankful that Amerikatt's inspiration passed peacefully of old age in a home full of love. Kind thoughts and best wishes to you and your family.
