Grumpy Cat, a feline whose perpetual scowl turned countless frowns upside-down, died Tuesday, her family said

The 7-year-old meme-machine kitty from Arizona, whose real name was Tardar Sauce, encountered fatal complications after a urinary tract infection, a tweet entitled “Some days are grumpier than others” revealed Friday. She died peacefully in owner Tabatha Bundesen’s arms.


Besides being our baby and a cherished member of the family, Grumpy Cat has helped millions of people smile all around the world — even when times were tough,” the tribute reads. “Her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere.”


Grumpy Cat’s sour-puss expression was the result of dwarfism and an underbite. She rose to fame in 2012 after Bundesen’s brother Bryan uploaded a photo of her to Reddit, claiming a “best cat on the internet” award the following year and raking in money for her owner. She even inspired a 2014 Christmas movie.

As of Friday, her Facebook page had more than 8.5 million likes, 2.4 million people followed her on Instagram and she had over 250,000 YouTube subscribers

Perhaps now she’s reunited with late Marvel Legend Stan Lee, who shared her displeasure in 2015.


She will be greatly missed. Our hearts go out to her family and fans. This fan will miss her
