The First Cat of Westeros isn’t coming back to HBO’s Game of Thrones anytime soon.

Ser Pounce is off the show for the rest of the fourth season, at least. The king-guarding feline sparked a social media surge after interrupting Margaery Tyrell’s quasi-seduction of teenage King Tommen on Sunday’s episode. HBO told us Ser Pounce does not appear in any of the six episodes that remain this year. (Only Game of Thrones could spark a post-episode frenzy over man raping his sister one week, followed by a cat with a cute name the next week.) That said, Ser Pounce could potentially appear in future seasons, especially since he’s in George R.R. Martin’s later Song of Ice and Fire novels.

Here’s our exchange with Ser Pounce’s very unofficial Twitter feed discussing the subject when we broke this tragic news yesterday:
