Ricky Gervais took to Twitter on Tuesday to reveal that his cat Ollie has died. The 16-year-old Siamese cat had somewhat of a fanbase on her own, with a personal Twitter account with over 61K followers.

“Just had to say goodbye to the sweetest little soul I’ve ever known. RIP Ollie,” Gervais tweeted out, alongside “July 9th 2003 - March 10th 2020.”

Gervais longtime romantic partner, Jane Fallon, also tweeted out her affection and mourning for their Ollie, writing: “I have awful news. My smart, funny, feisty, beautiful sidekick of the last 16 & a half years @myleftfang has passed away after a sudden down turn in her health at the weekend. My heart is broken in two. I have no idea what I’m going to do without her by my side. #Ollie.”

Ollie originally became sick back in April 2019, according to The Mirror.

Ollie was given to Gervais by comedian and TV show host Jonathan Ross back in 2003. During an interview, Ross and Gervais spoke about “The Office” show creator and actor’s affinity for animals. Ross then revealed to Gervais that they were gifting him a cat, to his disbelief. After being given the cat, Gervais was asked what he was going to name her. He didn’t immediately have an answer -- in fact, he used the opportunity to throw a quick jab at the host -- but Gervais and Fallon ultimately landed on Ollie.

The cat was named after one of Gervais’s biggest comedic inspirations Oliver Hardy, who was one half of the famous comedy duo Laurel and Hardy.

Since the announcement of Ollie's death, fans of Gervais, Fallon, and Ollie herself have been getting the cat’s name into the trending section of the social media site, posting their condolences for the loss.
