Leo the Cat, who played Churn in Pet Sematary, died earlier today on (May 30). Animal trainer Kirk Jarrett, who adopted Leo, confirmed it.
In his Instagram post, he said that Leo will be ‘forever missed’. He also hoped that the kitty would ‘always shine bright’.
A total of four cats had taken part in the making of the movie. But Leo’s angry face was the one in all the posters.
Jarett said, “Leo is a confident sit-stay cat. His role is as the undead Church; that was his whole purpose, to be the poster child. The cat you see all across the different platforms, and in the trailer, almost any time he’s in in the undead makeup—that was Leo.”
Another animal trailer, Melissa Millett, said that Leo had ‘such a cool look, different from any other cat’. ‘He’s got this beautiful face, and these eyes that are so expressive,’ Millett continued.
Even though the cat has passed on to a different realm, he will forever stay alive in our hearts through the movies he’s been a part of.
