Brooklyn’s Most Popular Cat Has Died


The Brooklyn Brewery’s cat, Monster, who had almost 1,500 Facebook followers, died of kidney failure yesterday, the Brooklyn Brewery reported. He was 13 years old. The cat was a regular fixture in the brewery as well as on N. 11th Street, where he could be spotted stalking dogs or lazing against a building.

“When he wasn’t working the crowds, visitors to The Brewery would find Monster perched above the Company Store watching/napping over his guests, and glaring eagle-eyed at any and all intrusive dogs. In his tenure as Tasting Room Host, Monster has made fans from across the world,” the brewery reported on its blog. “Monster quickly became one of the most photographed objects in The Brewery, and aside from possibly Brewmaster Oliver has posed with more Brooklyn fans than any other member of the team.”
