Grumpy Cat, The Internet Celebrity Cat Passed Away Peacefully At The Age Of Seven

Grumpy Cat, the internet’s most popular cat and one of its first viral memes, has passed away at age 7.

The Official Grumpy Cat

Her real name is Tardar Sauce and she is famous for her permanently “grumpy” appearance. Her grumpy look and perpetual frown are due to an underbite and feline dwarfism. She became an Internet sensation after her owner’s brother put a photograph of her on Reddit on September 22, 2012.

Her photo has quickly gone viral with millions of likes and views across all social media channels. As of May 17, 2019, she has 8.5 million total followers on Facebook, 2.6 million followers on Instagram and 1.5 million followers on Twitter. Despite her grumpy expression, that does not mean she is of a grumpy nature too. She is a normal cat who behaves normally all the times.

After her photo went viral, she quickly became the subject of a popular internet meme in which her negative, grumpy images used to communicate apathy or cynicism.

She passed away peacefully on the morning of Tuesday, May 14, at home in the arms of her mommy, Tabatha.”
