Tardar Sauce, which is the real name of the world famous Snowshoe-Cat, became an Internet-Legend after some Pics got posted on Reddit in 2012 and she was the face of the angry, bitter-sweet subconscious of the online world ever since. 8 billion misanthropes suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. Something terrible has happened.
She will be dearly missed and never forgotten. Mach’s gut, Grumpy, und… ach scheiße. I hate death. (Shit. This is really actually sad. Fuck this.)
Grumpy Cat, the feline famous on the internet for her permanent scowl, has died aged seven, her owners say. A statement says she died on Tuesday following complications from a recent urinary tract infection. The cat from Arizona had “helped millions of people smile”.
Grumpy, whose real name was Tardar Sauce, went viral in 2012 after photographs of her sour expression emerged online. Her image quickly spread as a meme. According to owner Tabitha Bundesen, her facial expression was caused by feline dwarfism.
Grumpy Cat travelled the world making television appearances and in 2014 even starred in her own Christmas film. Madame Tussauds in San Francisco unveiled a waxwork of her in 2015. Her Instagram account has more than two million followers.
