  • NEW YORK NY- OCTOBER 09 Grumpy Cat visits at SiriusXM Studios

News has broken today that the feline internet celebrity, Tardar Sauce aka: Grumpy Cat has passed away at the young age of seven after suffering complications from a urinary tract infection. Born April 4, 2012, she passed away on May 14, 2019.

The lovable grump, with her permanently "frowning" face, became an internet sensation at just 5 months old, when a photo of her was posted on Reddit back in 2012.

Grumpy Cat's family, including her owner Tabatha Bundesen, made the announcement of her passing this morning on Twitter and described her as their "baby".

The internet star now has millions of followers on social media.

Grumpy Cat - real name Tardar Sauce - shot to fame as a figurehead of online culture thanks to her permanent frown apparently signalling displeasure at anything and everything.

"Though I suppose there could be a different father, promiscuous cats you know", Grumpy Cat's website stated.

"We are unimaginably heartbroken to announce the loss of our beloved Grumpy Cat", her owners wrote.

Her popularity was sealed by her participation at the South by Southwest Interactive (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas. It's unclear if her genetic quirks played a role in her somewhat early death, but it's worth noting that research on domestic cats suggests the average lifespan of a house cat is anywhere from 13 to 17 years. Importantly, the cat wasn't actually that angry; her scowl was the unique result of feline dwarfism and an underbite.

Grumpy Cat wasn't always Grumpy Cat.

But that did not stop the cat from putting smiles across the faces of millions of people. The following year, she scored her own Lifetime holiday movie, "Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever", a two-hour spectacle featuring the voice talents of actress Aubrey Plaza as the title character.
