This is the message which captioned Grumpy Cat’s last Twitter post. The unbelievably famous feline passed away only aged 7.
A huge celebrity
Grumpy Cat first became famous in 2012, thanks to the internet, and well, mainly thanks to her unique looks. The cat was born with a form of dwarfism, which caused this ‘grumpy’ look on her face. Though she was different, her owners loved her dearly just the same.
And they weren’t the only ones. Grumpy Cat, also affectionately known as Tardar Sauce, was approached by many marketing projects who used her unforgettable face for their brands. This made the cute cat wealthy, as she is now worth over 125 million dollars.
Grumpy Cat was also Queen of social media, appearing in thousands of memes all over Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Youtube. Her mom even had to take a leave of absence from her work so she would have enough time to manage her schedule.
A heart-wrenching loss for the whole world
Grumpy Cat’s family are devastated by the loss of their beloved pet, but will always cherish her memory.
“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. Her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere.”
She was more than just a Grumpy Cat. She was the best cat. We will miss seeing your beautiful face. Rest in Peace, sweet Tardar.
