Grumpy Cat Dead - Beloved Internet Famous Cat Dies at 7

The world's most famous cat and internet legend, Grumpy Cat has passed away.

Meow meow - Grumpy Cat died on Tuesday.

She looked "grumpy" because of feline dwarfism and an under-bite, meaning her lower jaw came forward more than it was meant to. Bundesen was a Red Lobster waitress before Grumpy Cat's rocket to stardom.

The mixed-breed cat, whose real name is Tardar Sauce, found fame when a photo of her as a kitten was posted on Reddit in September 2012, her website says. "This cat has brought so much joy to mine and millions of other people's lives the last few years", Twitter user Grace wrote. Tardar Sauce aka Grumpy Cat didn't survive due to the complications arose from a urinary tract infection as mentioned by her family on social media.

During her time in the spotlight, the gal was named Meme of the Year in 2013. Grumpy Cat Limited sued the owners of the US coffee company Grenade for exceeding an agreement over the cat's image. Many memes come and go, but her owner, Tabatha Bundesen, turned the cat's face into the center of a thriving business.

"Besides being our baby and cherished member of the family, Grumpy Cat has helped millions of people smile all around the world-even when times were tough", the note continued. "Her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere".

Described by CNN as a "furry titan of the internet", Grumpy's obituary appeared in The Washington Post, Der Spiegel in Germany, Le Monde and even the Russian business magazine Kommersant.

Her owners posted on social media that she experienced complications from a urinary tract infection.
