Grumpy Cat passed away, and we’re frowning about it
Sad news folks. Unfortunately, Internet superstar and regular pet Grumpy Cat passed away earlier this week. In a post shared by her parents, it was revealed that Tardar Sauce (Grumpy Cat’s real name) suffered complications from a urinary tract infection.
The late Grumpy Cat wasn’t actually that grumpy. The cause of the permanent frown on her face was probably due to her having feline dwarfism. So, at least we can rest assured that she had a very fun life. (Full of catnip and mice and such.)

Having originally broken onto the scene via Reddit in 2012, Grumpy Cat became a veritable celebrity. We’re talking lucrative deals, here. Brands like Friskies and Skechers wanted a piece of her. She made appearances on talk shows, and she gained a heck of a lot of followers.
In fact, estimates have put Grumpy Cat’s net worth at around $100M USD, but that number has been debunked by her owners. She definitely had more cash in the bank than we do, though, that’s for sure.
All we know is we’re feeling a little grumpier than usual today. RIP Grumpy Cat, gone but never forgotten.
