Internet superstar Grumpy Cat has died

The Grumpy Cat has died

Grumpy Cat may be gone, but the memes that helped propel her to fame live on.

Grumpy Cat's family posted a note on Twitter saying the cat passed away Tuesday from a urinary tract infection.

Tardar Sauce, as Grumpy was known to her family, rose to fame in 20212 after her photograph was posted on Reddit.

"Some days are grumpier than others" was the tweet that Grumpy Cat's owners posted to break the news to fans that the beloved feline had died at age 7.

Owner Tabatha Bundesen founded Grumpy Cat Ltd and created a website that included an online shop featuring 884 items, including T-shirts and mugs with the cat's picture.

According to a report by NBC News, that cat was seven years old.

People took to Twitter, where Grumpy Cat had 1.5 million followers, to mourn her passing and celebrate some choice memes she inspired.

Cheer up Tardar Sauce, you're rich!

Grumpy Cat wasn't, in fact, perpetually grumpy; her distinctive scowl was caused by a form of dwarfism.

The shop on the Grumpy Cat website includes almost 900 items, according to the New York Times.

The cat also made an appearance on Broadway, as well as starring in a film and "writing" four best-selling books.

Over the years, Grumpy Cat became an icon, appearing on such TV shows as Today, Good Morning America, American Idol, and The Bachelorette and in publications like Time, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, and New York Magazine. She also had t-shirts, mugs, stuffed toys and books in her name.

Getty "Grumpy Cat" is held by owners Chrystal and Tabatha Bundesen before the Major League Baseball game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the San Francisco Giants at Chase Field on September 7, 2015 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Clearly, Grumpy lived an extraordinary life and touched the hearts of many.

"May she enjoy the Rainbow Bridge".
