Ser Pounce, Tommen’s cat, hasn’t been seen on Game of Thrones since the season four episode “Oathkeeper” nearly five years ago. This has led to endless speculation about the fate of Ser Pounce, especially since Tommen committed suicide in season six. The speculation, however, can end now.

Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss confirmed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that Ser Pounce is, in fact, dead, and that Cersei was responsible.

“Cersei hated the name ‘Ser Pounce’ so much she could not allow him to survive,” Benioff said. “So she came up with her most diabolical [execution]. Ser Pounce’s death was so horrible we couldn’t even put it on the air.”

“If you buy the super-extended, super-charged Game of Thrones box set that comes out, the death of Ser Pounce will be in there,” Dan Weiss added. “Just one whole episode devoted to the death of Ser Pounce.”

All kidding aside, Benoiff said the cat was not pleasant to work with.

“That cat was really not fun to work with,“ Benioff said. “There’s a reason the phrase ‘like herding cats’ came into existence.”

“Dogs generally do what you ask them to do if they’re smart and well trained,” Weiss added. “Cats have their own agenda.”
