Spokane creator of Keyboard Cat approves a plush toy version of Fatso

Oh lord, Charlie Schmidt! You had to sell out, didn't you?

Schmidt is the Spokane graphic artist behind Fatso, the web meme cat of "Keyboard Cat" fame.

Today, Fatso, who's in feline heaven, must be rolling angrily in his catnip.

Sadly, Schmidt allowed a toy company to make a plush animatronic toy version of the cat. Really, and for only $34.99.

I suppose it could be worse; like perhaps, Keyboard Cat Litter..
