Salem was a black cat from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, who loved the bathtub.

One night, Salem’s owner, Amanda Barron, used a bath bomb that featured glitter. Salem got in the tub afterward and died.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WAS A METAPHOR

Salem — as we knew him — died and was reborn as Glitter Cat.

Behold Glitter Cat, his ebony fur dotted with multitudinous glimmers as the night sky is with stars. Weep in transported ecstasy as his aphotic pelage incandesces anew beneath the featherweight legions of efflugent minutiae.

There is no Salem. Not anymore. Maybe there never was. Now there is only Glitter Cat.
