Internet sensation Grumpy Cat passes away aged 7



The world’s crankiest cat with a permanent scowl that has inspired countless memes, a best-selling series of books and a movie has passed away.

Grumpy Cat, owned by Tabatha Bundesen from Morristown, Arizona shot to fame in 2012 in a YouTube video that got 15.7 million views, and earned more than Hollywood stars Nicole Kidman, Cameron Diaz and Matthew McConaughey during her time in the spotlight.

Her family took to Instagram this morning to announce the news that she’d died from a urinary tract infection, saying: ‘Some days are grumpier than others’.

Even amassing a reported $100M fortune was not enough to put a smile on the face of the internet sensation – real name Tardar Sauce.

Within two days of her first appearance on social media, her owner was able to quit her job as a waitress and the phone ‘never stopped ringing’.

Grumpy was born with dwarfism and an underbite, giving her a disgruntled expression.
