With deep sadness I share the news from the real life Tommy’s Woman, that beloved Tommy has passed away suddenly at the age of 16. Even though he was an older cat, it was quite unexpected and it has understandably left her reeling. She shared more about it in her own words on Tommy’s FB page which is called ‘Admiral Thomas “Tommy” Whiskerstache.’
Real life Tommy was one in a billion; a big, handsome, fluffy, bad, good, gentle, hilarious, mischievous Muppet. He will be missed dearly.
He was the oldest of the real life BCN crew I believe; sixteen years old. And so much like Lupin, still had so much life and energy to him right up until the end. The troublemakers seem to have so much love and hilarity to give. The fun-trouble kept them each tumbling forward a longer time than one would expect, given the health problems they ultimately faced.
Just like Lupin, Tommy will remain in the comic. All of the BCN cats will always be together and safe in the comic. (…This has been such a hard year…)
Good boys are good. Bad boys are better. Tommy was the best of both.
So much love to his Woman, his Man, his Girl, and Sophie.
