The internet cries as we have the bad news of the death of the iconic Grumpy Cat.
The cat from Arizona, died after complications arose from a urinary tract infection, her family wrote on Twitter.
“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 owners wrote in the post.
It all started in 2012.
In September of that year, Bryan Bundesen posted a picture of his sister Tabatha’s cat, Tardar Sauce, an 11-month old tabby with feline dwarfism that perpetually looked annoyed. The internet was enraptured with Grumpy Cat. You can check the original post HERE.
The grumpy face quickly became a meme, and placing bold words above and below her frown became a way for people to express grumpy thoughts. Perhaps the most famous: “I had fun once. It was awful.”
Grumpy Cat was named the Meme of the Year at the 2013 Webby Awards, beating out “Gangnam Style” and “Harlem Shake.” Many memes come and go, but her owner, Tabatha Bundesen, turned the cat’s face into the center of a thriving business.
We hope that Grumpy Cat had a great travel to a better place, where she can finally be happy. We cry her departure here on earth.
