“Mushroom Kitten” Dies, Fans Are Left Brokenhearted

The kitten rose to fame after a photo of her wearing a mushroom costume was posted online

Remember Wasabi-chan, the adorable kitten that got loads of attention after her owners posted a picture of her wearing a mushroom costume online?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it looks like she passed away earlier this week.

According to Mashable, Wasabi-chan had some stomach issues prior to her death, and even had to be hospitalized for a while.

It hasn't been confirmed yet, but these tummy aches may be the ones to blame for her death.

As previously reported, this adorable kitten was the survivor of a crow attack that had left her with a fractured jaw and a hole in her throat.

The people who found her and took her under their care made Wasabi-chan wear the mushroom costume to keep her from fidgeting and further injuring herself.
