Tardar Sauce died of complications from a urinary tract infection at age 7. But what a wild 7 years they were.
Tardar Sauce's "grumpy" appearance launched her into viral stardom back in 2012 after her owner's brother posted her photo to Reddit with the caption, "Meet grumpy cat."

Since then, Grumpy Cat became an unstoppable force. She landed book deals, a TV movie, became the spokescat for Friskies, and even had several appearances here on RightThisMinute, including an exclusive Skype interview, which you can watch below.
Although Grumpy Cat was always grumpy, she never failed to make us smile. She will be missed.
