World famous Grumpy Cat dies at age 7

"Her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere", they added. Born April 4, 2012, she passed away on May 14, 2019.

She became an internet celebrity in September 2012, when Tabatha's brother Bryan posted photos showing her in all her disgruntled glory on the r/pics sub-Reddit.

Grumpy Cat died "peacefully" on Tuesday morning in the arms of her "mommy", her official Twitter account announced Friday morning on Twitter.

Its owners said that even though the cat was famous - but we are sure Grumpy Cat had no idea - it led a normal life, the Independent reports.

Wider fame followed, with fans rushing to buy calendars and posters.

In remembering the meme star one last time, the Times noted "that Grumpy Cat wasn't grumpy at all" as her owners have previously insisted Tardar Sauce is a "cuddly kitty and loves to be held and rubbed".

Tabatha Bundesen and her company Grumpy Cat Limited were involved in a copyright lawsuit that took three years to play out in federal court. Rest in peace, Tardar Sauce!

Grumpy's face has starred in thousands of memes with many people choosing to share them again after hearing the news of her death. She appeared on TV, popping up in episodes of "American Idol", "The Bachelorette" and WWE's "Monday Night Raw".

Others shared fond memories of Grumpy Cat, including pictures from those who met Grumpy Cat around the world and managed to snag a photo with the beloved pet. And in an era when many people imitate presidents, President Obama did an impression of Grumpy Cat during a speech in 2015.

Grumpy Cat even has her own animatronic look-a-like at Madame Tussauds in London. It was the following year that she landed her own Lifetime movie, Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever, featuring the voice of Aubrey Plaza as the title character.
