It has been announced that Grumpy Cat (aka Tardar Sauce), queen of Internet memes and an inspiration to my inner curmudgeon, passed away at the tender age of 7 due to complications related to a urinary tract infection.
Grumpy Cat’s owners stated in part:
“Some days are grumpier than others…
We are unimaginably heartbroken to announce the loss of our beloved Grumpy Cat,”
Grumpy Cat will be sorely missed, but her memes will live on forever. 🙁
