Actor Anthony Hopkins Mourns the Loss of His Beloved Cat in Video That Has Us in Tears

When a beloved pet passes away, it's almost as if we're losing a piece of ourselves, too. There's some consolation to be found in the community of supportive animal lovers who will be happy to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder to cry on, but nothing can replace that hole in our hearts. We know how painful of a feeling it is, and--although it's inevitable--we wouldn't wish it on anyone.

Artist, composer, and actor Anthony Hopkins announced the passing of his gray tabby cat, Niblo, in a recent TikTok post. As difficult of a time as it is, it's special to see so many fans and viewers offering their condolences. 

Rest in Peace, sweet Niblo! The love you shared with your dad is evident in the way he smiled when he looked at you. Those are the small moments us pet parents never, ever forget. 

Viewers like @maitaigirl and many others offered their apologies for Niblo's passing. She said, "I’m so sorry for your loss 🥺💐🌈." It's honestly touching to see how many TikTok users reached out. We hope Anthony is feeling the love and support through the screen.

"Beautiful music in honor of Niblo," wrote @armygirl.38. "Fly high sweet kitty 🐈‍⬛." We know Niblo would've loved this beautiful tribute, but he already knows just how loved and adored he is."
