Dooley J. Hornberg passed away on May 12, 2013 while being snuggled in blankets in the sunlight.

According to veterinary estimates, he was born around the year 2000. In 2005, he was found in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles under the bridge made famous in the Red Hot Chili Peppers song “Under the Bridge”. He was presented to Liz Brown as a gift on her birthday by neighbor and famed bassist/visual artist Matt Pinkus.


After making himself at home with Liz and her husband, he revealed that held a PhD in Microbiology from University of California, Berkeley and could often be seen staring out the window pondering what the sea must be like this time of year. He became a member of the all black-and-white tuxedo cat band “The Kitties 3” and was known for his uniquely funky bass jams.

Dooley had a brief but brilliant career in the entertainment industry, appearing in the popular YouTube comedy short “The Ending of Lost,” created by a collection of students from the world famous Groundlings Theater. You can see Dooley’s performance here

Dooley’s nose was extremely pink. He was well known to be the best cat in the household.

RIP Dooleycat. A fine friend to all who knew him.
