Grumpy Cat, the ubiquitous internet celebrity whose permanent scowl spoke for all of us in our darkest moments, died in the arms of her “mommy” on Tuesday, her family said on Friday. She was 7.

The cat, whose actual name is Tardar Sauce and who hailed from Arizona, died after complications arose from a urinary tract infection, her family wrote on Twitter.

I hate it!

Legit sad.

RIP little grumpy one.

So sad.

Thanks for all the joy, little one.

I'm wondering if the given name's better than the stage name.

I am displeased

Tardar Sauce's grumpy look came as a result of feline dwarfism, which typically results in higher than average health complications and an overall (sometimes drastically) shorter life span.

I still say Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever is a great holiday movie for kids, and Aubry Plaza is perfect as the voice.

This cat had a name... Her name was Tardar Sauce, Her name was Tardar Sauce, Her Name was Tardar Sauce.

Why the hell do people breed these poor kitties with such tragically short lifespans?
If a breed of cat has issues this severe why do it?

I'm sorry you're grieving for so long over the cat.

That kitty was an icon. I'm still a little sad she's gone.

I mean, unethical breeding practices leading to severe medical issues are absolutely an issue in the pet-o-sphere. I'm better at dog issues because I've got a cat allergy and a dog, so it might be my bias to say those are more clear, but, you know, everything from weakened immune systems to breathing issues due to shortened snouts to hip dysplasia to low life spans to regular old being dumb are for real.

I love cats. I recently lost multiple cats to old age. I never really was into the memes but I was aware of Grumpy cat.
