    ‘A special companion’: Beloved Marty the Cat dies after 12 years of patrolling New Hampshire’s Mount Washington as its weather observatory’s mascot

    • He succumbed to an unforeseen illness after patrolling the mountain for 12 years
    • Mount Washington Observatory staff have had a cat at the summit since 1932

    A beloved cat who patrolled New Hampshire‘s Mount Washington for 12 years as its weather observatory’s mascot has died.

    Marty, a black Maine coon cat, helped staff at the mountain’s observatory and was a ‘special companion’ to them.

    The popular cat succumbed to ‘an unforeseen illness,’ Mount Washington Summit Operations Manager Rebecca Scholand said in a statement on Monday.

    ‘As a past observer who lived on the summit for four years I can tell you Marty was a special companion, entertainer and so incredibly loved by observers and state park staff and will be sadly missed,’ she added.

    Marty the cat was supposed to retire from the mountain, known as the ‘home of the world’s worst weather’ early in 2021. 

    As a result, plans are already underway to find his successor. ‘The summit feline tradition will continue,’ the Mount Washington Observatory statement said. 

    He was adopted from the North Conway Area Humane Society and moved to the Mount Washington Summit in January 2008.

    The observatory staff maintain a weather station on the summit and perform weather and climate research.

    The weather station is staffed continuously and is operated by two alternating crews who live on the summit for a week at a time. It was during these long hours of taking weather observations that the staff had Marty as their companion.
