Celebrity blue collar cat called Dirt dies aged 15 shot to global fame after soot covered photo


Two life-size bronze statues are to be created of Dirt, a semi-feral cat who shot to fame after he was photographed on the Nevada Northern Railway.

The Nevada Northern Railway Museum announced that its beloved shop cat had passed away at the age of 15 on Tuesday of this week.

Dirt was discovered as a kitten in the railroad’s locomotive shop in 2008 and was taken in by the shop crews who provided him with food and eventually took him to a vet for a checkup. 

He quickly made the cabs of the railroad’s steam locomotives his home, earning him his nickname ‘Dirtbag’ which was later shortened to simply ‘Dirt’.
