The world is a bit less grumpier today as the world’s grumpiest cat has outlived her nine lives.
The owners of 7-year-old Grumpy Cat announced her death Thursday night, explaining that she passed away due to complications from a urinary tract infection. The furry celebrity passed away Tuesday, May 14 “in the arms of her mommy, Tabitha.”
Grumpy’s family says, “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 cat, who was actually named Tardar Sauce, became an internet celebrity back in 2012 with millions of followers after her photo was posted to Reddit. After gaining fame, she even signed a deal with Friskies.
