Ellen DeGeneres is grieving the death of one of her adored pets. The daytime anchor person, 61, told via web-based social networking media on January 17, (Friday) that her feline, Charlie, has passed on. DeGeneres shared the tragic news alongside two photos of the late cat on her Twitter and Instagram accounts.
In the shots, DeGeneres can be seen sitting outside on a lounger as Charlie roosts next to her. The two are gazing into one another’s eyes in a single photograph, while another shows DeGeneres and her pet looking out toward the skyline.
“One of the hardest decisions to make but so glad we could end her suffering,” the star added.
DeGeneres previously shared with Media that she had rescued Charlie when she was a full-grown cat.
“Charlie has a dog personality where she has to be wherever people are and follow you from room to room,” she told PEOPLE in 2009.
Though the talk show host is an all-around pet lover, she told Good Housekeeping in 2018 that Charlie has a special place in her heart.
“I have three dogs (Wolf, Augie and Kid) and three cats (Charlie, George and Chairman). I would tell you more about them, but like any celebrity parent, I think it’s important to keep them out of the press,” she said. “Do I have a favorite? I couldn’t possibly answer that! It’s Charlie.”
