At this point, you have most likely heard the news that one of the most famous animals on the planet, the legendary Grumpy Cat, aka Tardar Sauce, passed away at age 7 on Tuesday, May 14, according to the official Grumpy Cat social media accounts. The feline known for her hilariously relatable scowl was adored by cat lovers and meme enthusiasts across the globe.

On Friday, May 17, Grumpy Cat's official Twitter page @RealGrumpyCat tweeted an announcement of Grumpy Cat's death with the caption:
Some days are grumpier than others...
Grumpy Cat's family, Tabatha, Bryan, and Chrystal, attached a photo of the famed feline with a message to Grumpy Cat's fans. It explained how Grumpy was hit with a urinary tract infection, which caused a range of problems that "became too tough for her to overcome."
Per the post, "[S]he passed away peacefully on the morning of Tuesday, May 14, at home in the arms of her mommy, Tabatha." In addition to being a beloved house pet (and obviously a key member of the family!), Grumpy Cat changed the lives of so many people by simply making them smile. The emotional statement closed with, "Her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere." Seriously, it's so heartbreaking, but Grumpy Cat fans will keep her memory alive.
And while the comically gloomy-looking kitty will be greatly missed by so, so many fans, it's important to look back on all the joy she brought to everybody's lives.

You probably remember when, per The New York Times, she first burst onto the scene in 2013 with a simple Reddit post that read, "Meet grumpy cat."
If you ever wondered whether Grumpy Cat was really a sourpuss, Tardar Sauce's family made sure to clarify that she was "super cute and cuddly." Per the NYT, her less-than-thrilled expression was due to feline dwarfism, but it definitely made for some amazing memes. Check out some of the greatest Grumpy Cat memes of all time below.
