Joey The Garden Cat Passes Away

As you well know, FTVLive is a huge animal lover (it's people we can't stand) and we got some sad news over the weekend.

KTHV (Little Rock) mascot, Joey the Garden Cat has passed away from an illness. The station posted on Joey's Facebook page the sad news:

"From the THV11 staff: We would like to our extend our gratitude to each and every one of you for all your kind words and thoughts about the passing of Joey The Garden Cat. From the beginning, when he showed up in our Weather Garden, he stole our hearts and many of yours. He will always be remembered, and his spirit will continue to be a big part of the THV11 family. Thank you again for all your kindness."

Joey was a staff and viewer favorite from the first day he showed up on the set.

Joey played by different rules than the rest of the staff. If Joey wanted to take his lunch break in the middle of the newscast, he would do it. Let's go to the video:

RIP Joey, I know you will be missed.
