Grumpy Cat: internet's most famous cat dies aged seven

TWITTER

Rest in peace, Grumpy Cat.

Way back in 2012, when everybody was busy browsing through thousands of internet pages, a meme was born in the form of the Grumpy Cat.

Grumpy Cat, whose permanent scowl was the result of an underbite and feline dwarfism, was an online sensation.

Tardar Sauce, as Grumpy was known to her family, rose to fame in 20212 after her photograph was posted on Reddit. The cat starred in a Lifetime Christmas movie, Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever, she was on the cover of New York Magazine, and her book hit No. 7 on The New York Times' advice, how-to and miscellaneous best-seller list.

"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 family said in a statement posted to Twitter. She was voiced by "Parks and Recreation" star Aubrey Plaza. Her image quickly spread as a meme.

Hundreds of fans posted messages of condolences on social media.

Grumpy's owners have never revealed how much money she made but experts think she's worth anywhere from $1 million to $100 million.

Grumpy Cat has helped millions of people smile all around the d- even when times were tough.

Our thoughts are with Grumpy's loved ones and her fans at this hard time.
