Pictures with funny or informative captions called “memes” are a huge trend on social media. For cat lovers, Grumpy Cat holds a special place in our hearts. As a cat lover myself, I love seeing Grumpy Cat on my Facebook page.
Grumpy Cat was not always the celebrity animal that she is today. Her real name is Tardar Sauce and she has loving owners like many other cats. Her claim to fame began when one of her humans used her picture on social media and added grumpy captions.
Tardar Sauce and her grumpy face have become so widely popular she was featured on the cover of the Wall Street Journal and has earned herself a movie deal. She also has a book entitled “Grumpy Cat: A Grumpy Book”.
Contrary to popular belief, Grumpy Cat is not grumpy all the time. Her owners say that she is remarkably “calm”. Her grumpy face, they say, is due to feline dwarfism. She has a flat face and bubble eyes, which contribute to her grumpy expression.
Next time you read a Grumpy Cat picture remember that she is not grumpy at all. For a cat, she has made quite a name for herself on the internet.
