Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Benioff confirmed that Pounce had gone the way of his owner, just like every other innocent creature in that godforsaken show.

Bad news for all Game of Thrones fans who also happen to be cat people: Ser Pounce, the beloved feline friend of King Tommen, has followed his owner to the grave.

But what happened to him after Tommen committed suicide and Cersei (Lena Headey) crowned herself queen in season 6? And then Ser Pounce had to suffer an even bigger indignity: an off-screen death.

"Cersei hated the name "Ser Pounce" so much she could not allow him to survive", Benioff said. Cersei killing her son's cat falls aptly in her characteristic.

Madrid can win fourth straight Champions League, says Courtois
The stopper, who previously played for Chelsea, says there is pressure on him at Real Madrid , but that's not too different from elsewhere.

But it turns out there was one character death that was "so horrible" it couldn't make it to air - and it was all because of Cersei Lannister. "So she came up with her most diabolical [execution]". After about 30 seconds max of screentime, Ser Pounce is off the bed, never to be seen again in Red Keep.

Are you saddened by the passing of Ser Pounce? And this was confirmed by Dean-Charles Chapman, who had revealed in an interview to Huffington post that "there's a lot of staff around the kingdom to look after him". Benioff said: "That cat was really not fun to work with".

Benioff's co-showrunner, D.B. Weiss even used the joke to slip in an advertisement for the Game of Thrones box set coming later this year, promising it showed the grim footage in the DVD extras. To which Weiss adds, "Dogs generally do what you ask them to do if they're smart and well trained", Weiss says. Let us know down in the comments.
