Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino has revealed that Snacks, her pet cat and Crazy For You album cover star, has died.

Snacks appeared on the cover of Best Coast's 2010 debut album Crazy For You, and most recently on Best Coast's "Leading" single cover.

The orange Maine Coon was also a mascot for Best Coast, and even had his own plush toy sold as merch.

Cosentino wrote on Twitter, "said goodbye to my best friend in the entire world today. my true love. my guardian angel. there will never be another one like him. he forever changed me. long live snacks the cat."

On Instagram, Cosentino added, "I always knew this day would come, but I hoped it never would. I said goodbye to my angel baby Snacks this afternoon. He was not just my cat. He belonged to all of you. He was the third member of this band. Our mascot. Our cover star. Our merch king. He meant everything to me and I’m going to miss him so much, but I know he will live on forever by way of the legacy he created simply by being himself. He loved you all so much and he knew you loved him. 14 wonderful years. I’m so honored that I got to be his mom. I love you forever Snacks. Long live the king."

Wavves' Nathan Williams also paid tribute to Snacks, who appeared on Wavves' King of the Beach artwork, "We lost a legend today. I hate this app but there are literally thousands of you fans with this cat tattooed on their bodies and they will carry his spirit with them. Legends never die. I love you Snacks. See you on the other side brother."

Last month Best Coast released the deluxe edition of Always Tomorrow.
