Grumpy Cat, an internet celebrity for her

permanent frown, died “in the arms of her mommy, Tabatha” this

week, leaving behind countless online jokes about how we all

feel at our worst moments, her family said on Friday. She was 7.

Despite care from top professionals, Grumpy died on Tuesday

from complications after a recent urinary tract infection, the

family said on Twitter.

Grumpy, whose real name is Tardar Sauce, became an internet

sensation after her owner Tabatha Bundesen posted a picture of

her scowl six years ago. She went on to appear on magazine

covers, television advertisements and even starred in her own

movie “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever.”

“Grumpy Cat has helped millions of people smile all around

the world – even when times were tough,” the family said. “Her

spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere.”

Some days are grumpier than others…
