Only the greatest memes of all time transcend social media platforms and take root in real-life popular culture. Perhaps the best example of this is Grumpy Cat, the moody feline who made her web debut on Reddit in 2012 and shot to IRL fame. Sadly, the internet legend died on Tuesday, and while she may be in the great litter box in the sky now, the grumpy memes will live on forever.
Millions of Grumpy Cat’s fans and followers around the world mourned her death and posted moving tributes on Twitter. It’s not every day an online personality -- especially a cat -- captures the hearts of so many. Perhaps it was her adorable crabby appearance, caused by an underbite and feline dwarfism, but her hilariously grumpy memes may have also played a part.
Throughout her tenure as a bonafide icon, Grumpy Cat starred in hundreds, if not thousands, of memes about hating humans, being devoid of anything resembling joy, and having an affinity for the word “no.” She was the kitty equivalent of that Monday Morning feeling, and fans ate it up. Following news of Grumpy Cat’s death, some of her best work has been shared on Twitter, and elsewhere.
While we have that #FridayFeeling because it's Friday, we are sadden by the passing of iconic Grumpy Cat 😿 RIP little one...Share your favorite Grumpy Cat meme/GIF!! #GrumpyCat #RIP @BuildingMadison @WhitelawRigging @americorpusa @SocialSMktg @DCSCInc @MayesMedia @RomaFence pic.twitter.com/ciBdvwVS5Z— Crescent Software, Inc (@CrescentSw_Inc) May 17, 2019
Might sound petty but grumpy cat was one of my first and favorite memes that I loved and grew up to seeing daily on my facebook feed. This makes me extremely sad. See you in heaven #GrumpyCat . Thank You for the smiles you gave us in this tough world. pic.twitter.com/Br4YHfEzSG— wazzi (@lilwazzi) May 17, 2019
Grumpy Cat -- though her real name was Tardar Sauce -- was more than a meme. The curmudgeonly cat turned her appearance into an empire, appearing in a commercial for Honey Nut Cheerios, on The Bachelorette and American Idol, and amassing an impressive, and loyal following.
She will be sorely missed. Luckily, memes live on.
