Our hearts go out to Ricky Gervais and his longtime partner Jane Fallon.
The couple took to social media this week to share some sad news: their beloved cat, Ollie, has passed away.
The 58-year-old comedian made the announcement on Instagram Tuesday, writing:
“Just had to say goodbye to the sweetest soul I’ve ever known. RIP Ollie. July 9th 2003 – March 10th 2020”
Many were left heartbroken by the news — and we’re not just talking about the thousands of followers who flooded Gervais’ comments section with their condolences.
On Wednesday, the Golden Globes host shared a photo of Ollie’s cat boyfriend Monty looking gut-wrenched after the comedian broke the tragic news to the feline.

“It looks like I’ve just broken the news to him and he dropped the flower he’d brought for her.”
Ollie was a frequent highlight of the entertainer’s social media.
