Grumpy Cat (real name, Tardar Sauce) rose to internet fame after a series of photos of her signature frown and furrowed brow were posted on Reddit, and videos were posted to YouTube. She became the poster cat for grumpy statements and being an all-round party pooper, becoming a meme sensation online.
Her appeal has translated to a global audience both on and offline, landing her a deal with Friskies – and you can even find plush Grumpy Cat toys available in stores. Grumpy Cat is also known for making special appearances for photo ops at the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas.
