Alaskan Bush People's youngest star Rain Brown announced the sudden death of a family member on Tuesday night, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The 15-year-old Discovery star admitted on her Instagram page that she was with the family member right before the sudden tragedy. It was her beloved cat who she called Chipmunk Cheeks.
"You will be missed dearly," the star wrote in an Instagram caption underneath a photo of the white and grey-haired cat. "We rarely get to say goodbye to our loved ones before they go, but I'm glad I got to pet and hold you one last time before I opened the door to let you into heaven."
Rain told a fan the cat had been "ran over," alongside a sad face emoji.
"I know you're still with me protecting me, and loving me when I'm sad," she added in her tribute.
The loss of the family pet comes on the heels of the heartbreaking news that matriarch Ami was spotted in a wheelchair earlier this month, Radar exclusively reported.
Fans are questioning whether Ami's cancer has now returned despite her former announcement last December that she beat the progressive disease.
