The “Photograph” singer, Ed Sheeran, recently said goodbyes to his first cat, Graham.
Graham was rescued and adopted by Sheeran and the two eventually grew close. When the singer was on tour, his manager, Stuart Shaw, and his partner, Liberty Shaw, used to look after him. During an interview with All In in August 2014, the 28 years old star said, “I missed Graham growing up, pretty much but I’ll be there is his later life”.
However, due to a terrible accident, Graham passed away recently. On 1st August, Sheeran posted an adorable picture of Graham, as a kitten, next to his guitar, on Instagram. He captioned the photo with a broken heart emoji.
Liberty also posted a picture of the cat’s paws revealing that he was struck by a car and had passed away. She wrote, “Our lovely little bud Baby Ba Boo aka Graham the Kitten passed away last night after being hit by a car. We are absolutely heartbroken. He was such a dude. Funny and clever and best mates with a massive German Shepherd. We are going [to] miss you so much. Thanks for all the fun”.
