A sad day for internet cats everywhere. Marty the original Nyan Cat has perished from Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP).

I can't find any rated FIP Charities, but the top rated animal charity in the country at Charity Navigator is here in Chicago, called PAWS, if you want to commemorate Marty's life. I can also vouch for Orphans of The Storm, in the Chicago Suburbs, that has a clean, caring, no-kill facility for stray animals.

I consider myself an Outdoor Party cat, but I do think my indoor cat brethren benefit from spaying/neutering. It never did me any harm!
