Fans Mourn The Loss Of Beloved TikTok Famous Cat Pot Roast

Pot Roast, one of the most beloved cats on TikTok with almost a million followers, has sadly passed away.

On Wednesday, the pet owner – who has never shared her name on the internet for privacy reasons – revealed that the cat had died following a battle with feline immunodeficiency virus. She said in a video where she was holding her beloved pet:

“My little bird flew away at 11:47 am this morning. When I saw Pot Roast this morning I could feel that she was done fighting and even though I wasn’t done fighting for her I let her go. She went to sleep in my arms. In the end, it was just her and me. And I am grateful for every moment we had together.”

Pot Roast’s death comes after she was diagnosed with the immune system-attacking infection earlier this month. In a video posted on February 3, her mom said that she suddenly had to be taken to the emergency vet for a blood transfusion and some tests. A couple of days later she then said she received “mostly bad news” about Pot Roast’s condition, then explained further in a February 8 video that the positive test for FIV came as a shock:

“This blindsided me. She tested negative as a kitten, as did all my other cats, as did every cat we fostered.”

She said the infection may have come from her previous cat Carrot, who possibly bit an FIV-positive cat while roaming outside and then passed it onto Pot Roast. The vet told her that the infection sadly progressed into Pot Roast’s bone marrow, and she could no longer make white and red blood cells. On Tuesday, the feline was admitted to the veterinary hospital again to get a blood transfusion after she suffered a seizure due to low blood sugar. That is when the mom shared that she didn’t know how much time they had left and decided to take a break from social media. She wrote in the caption at the time:

“I will know when to let go, the vet and I agree it’s not time yet. Thank you for loving us.”
