Talking with EW, Sport of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss revealed that someday after season 6, Cersei Lannister had her late son's cat killed. The explanation isn't as a result of Ser Pounce reminded Cersei of her dearly departed son and it was too painful. It's one thing way more petty. The very factor that made Ser Pounce so well-liked, his title, is identical motive that Cersei killed him. Benioff defined:

Cersei hated the title ‘Ser Pounce’ a lot she couldn’t enable him to outlive. So she got here up together with her most diabolical [execution]. Ser Pounce’s dying was so horrible we couldn’t even put it on the air.

Because the collection reaches its climax although Cersei has turn into extra unsympathetic and ruthless as she's misplaced practically everybody she cares about in her life. Moreover the undead Evening King, Cersei is arguably the actual and solely villain left on Sport of Thrones.

It's not arduous to imagine {that a} lady who imprisoned a mom and her poisoned daughter collectively so the mom can slowly watch her daughter die would kill a cat as a result of she hated its title. Even when Benioff and Weiss are completely joking about Ser Pounce's destiny it nonetheless reveals their place on Cersei's villainous standing.
