Sad news hit the internet this afternoon when Natalya announced via Twitter that her beloved cat Gismo had passed away.
The feline, who had a constant presence in her tweets and was featured in the latest episode of Total Divas, died from an undisclosed illness.

Her husband Tyson Kidd also paid tribute to Gismo, tweeting:

Tonight, Natalya posted the above photo of herself with Gismo, captioning it, “No more tears, Gismo. No more pain. You’ll always be my special boy. Proud of you for fighting so hard and for so long. You can never be replaced.”
As a lifelong pet owner, this definitely had me wiping away tears, but I’m glad to see Natalya looking at it in a positive way.
And, at the end of the day, the response on Twitter really says it all: Gismo was very loved.
