RIP Grumpy Cat: The meme and internet phenomenon is dead

Grumpy Cat Internet Star Dies at the Age of 7

Grumpy became the unhappy face of a range of merchandise, made numerous public appearances to meet her fans and even starred in a TV movie called "Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever".

The beloved cat, known for her "grumpy" scowl that attracted a huge following on the Internet, died at the age of 7, according to her owners on Friday (May 17). Feeling hangry? Grumpy. Cat.

The sourpuss with the piercing look of contempt quickly became a meme, and placing bold words above and below her frown became a common way for humans to express grumpy thoughts.

Mr Dymond took a lie-detector test to convince fiancee Jane Callaghan he had not been unfaithful, but was told he had failed. DCMS committee chairman Damian Collins said: " ITV has made the right decision to permanently cancel The Jeremy Kyle Show".

The famous kitty, whose appearance comes from feline dwarfism and whose real name is Tardar Sauce, prompted the rise of influencer pets online.

With 1.5 million followers on Twitter, the demise of Grumpy Cat leaves many social media users more than a little morose. She was voiced by "Parks and Recreation" star Aubrey Plaza. Her limited stint did not qualify for a Tony award. Thank you to her owners for sharing her with us. It allowed her to quit her job as a waitress at Red Lobster within days of her cat's internet debut, USA media reported.

"Grumpy Cat has helped millions of people smile all around the world - even when times were tough", her owners said.

And, of course, her demise was the top trending story Friday on Twitter, where fans posted thousands of messages of condolence and mourning. "Her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere", wrote Grumpy's family on her official Instagram handle.
