A Moment of Silence Please....
Grumpy Cat, the feline who became famous across social media for always
looking irritated, has died at the age of seven.
An announcement was posted by her family on the official Grumpy Cat
Twitter account early Friday morning.
"Despite care from top professionals, as well as from her very loving
family, Grumpy encountered complications from a recent urinary tract
infection that unfortunately became too tough for her to overcome," the
announcement said. "She passed away peacefully on the morning of
Tuesday, May 14, at home in the arms of her mommy, Tabatha."
"Besides being our baby and a cherished member of the family, Grumpy Cat
has helped millions of people smile all around he world -- even when
times were tough.
"Her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere.
"Grumpy's Family -- Tabitha, Bryan, and Chrystal"
Grumpy Cat, whose real name is Tardar Sauce, was born April 4, 2012,
according to the Grumpy Cat website. She blew up on the internet after
her photo was posted to Reddit that following September. Her family said
some skeptics thought the image of her ill-tempered expression was
photoshopped, but subsequent videos helped launch her to internet stardom.
Grumpy Cat's family said her face may have been due to feline dwarfism.
Her rear end also wobbled when she walked for the same reason.
Despite her crabby-looking mug, Grumpy Cat's family said she was a
normal cat "99% of the time."
Fans sent their well-wishes to the family.
