The Grumpy Cat: The Meme that Gives Cat Behavior a Whole New Meaning
Do you ever just wake up and realize that you’re having one of those days?
A day where you just can’t deal and aren’t exactly sure how to express yourself?
Well thankfully, a 3-year-old cat from Morristown, Arizona may be able to help you out. Her name is Tardar Sauce, but you probably know her better as “Grumpy Cat.”
Born in 2012, Grumpy Cat’s small stature and sassy facial expressions are more than likely caused by a case of feline dwarfism. Part calico cat, part unknown – the biographical information on her personal website, Grumpy Cat, says that she’s just an ordinary cat 99% of the time. Her famous face, however, has helped her to become a viral sensation across the internet, TV, and books.
Named 2012’s Cat of the Year by MSNBC, internet users the world over have turned Grumpy Cat into an icon.
A library of memes has been created which pair Tardar Sauce’s unforgettable frowns with some of the funniest life reflections you can imagine. Tardar has become the spokescat for all things annoying and unpleasant…gifting us all with the words we could never speak for ourselves. She was even awarded Buzzfeed’s Meme of the Year at the 2013 Webby Awards.
