SAN FRANCISCO: Grumpy Cat — the angry-looking celebrity feline who launched countless internet memes — died on Tuesday at the age of seven.

The cat from Arizona had “helped millions of people smile”.  Grumpy, whose real name was Tardar Sauce, went viral in 2012 after photographs of her sour expression emerged online.

Her image quickly spread as a meme. Grumpy Cat traveled the world making television appearances and in 2014 even starred in her own Christmas film. Madame Tussauds in San Francisco unveiled a waxwork of her in 2015.
