Grumpy Cat, a feline whose perpetual scowl turned countless frowns upside-down, died Tuesday, her family said.
The 7-year-old meme-machine kitty from Arizona, whose real name was Tardar Sauce, encountered fatal complications after a urinary tract infection, a tweet entitled "Some days are grumpier than others" revealed Friday. She died peacefully in owner Tabatha Bundesen's arms.
"Besides being our baby and a cherished member of the family, Grumpy Cat has helped millions of people smile all around the world -- even when times were tough," the tribute reads. "Her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere."
In 2015, Grumpy Cat was less than impressed at being honored at Madame Tussauds in San Francisco, and when President Barack Obama mimicked her as he described the Republican Party's outlook on America.
People took to Twitter, where Grumpy Cat had 1.5 million followers, to mourn her passing and to celebrate some choice memes she inspired.
