Grumpy Cat, whose real name was Tardar Sauce, found her fame in 2012 when a picture of her on Reddit went viral. Fast forward a few years, countless memes, and millions of Instagram followers... Grumpy Cat has starred in movies, cartoons, books, attended awards shows, met celebrities, and became the most famous cat on the internet.
She's known for her frowning face (due to feline dwarfism), but there's so much more to that frown and attitude. Grumpy Cat hated most humans, animals, holidays... and, well, everything. She thought it was all awful and she wasn't afraid to tell you. THAT'S why everyone loved her (which she hated, of course)—Grumpy Cat was relatable and spoke for our grumpy sides when we were too polite ;)
The internet will never be the same, but the memes and your lessons will live on. Thank you, Grumpy Cat.
Our #1 grumpiest moments was the meme that started it all... the very first picture with Grumpy Cat's favorite word... "NO."

Dearest @RealGrumpyCat, you were the yin to my yang, and a truly majestic feline. I am eternally grateful for the years I was able to share with you on Earth, and look forward to the light years I'll get to spend with you in space. #RIPGrumpyCat pic.twitter.com/cyVDvLC3iN
