She was arguably the world's most photographed cat--and she was certainly its most recognizable one. Tardar Sauce--aka Grumpy Cat--passed away earlier this week due to complications from a urinary tract infection. It's a loss being felt by cat lovers and pop-culture enthusiasts the world over.
Her meteoric rise following a Reddit post that went viral back in 2012 put famous cats--and special-needs animals of all kinds--in the middle of a global conversation about what it meas to love and respect animals. But more than words, Grumpy Cat inspired visual memes. The subject of some of the best of the internet's collective humor, as well as a darling of the celebrity set, this sour puss turned glamour puss had a face the camera loved--even as that same face proclaimed that it hated everything.
