41 Best Grumpy Cats Memes You’ll Love

Ah, cats. These agile, smart, and “uncaring” fur babies are one of man’s best friends. But no matter the occasion or how hard you try to impress them, sometimes cats aren’t fond of much. Grumpy Cat was a prime example of this. The famous feline was known for her grumpy disposition, which birthed plenty of grumpy cats memes that took over the internet.

Tardar Sauce, also known as “Grumpy Cat,” was born on the 4th of April 2012. The domestic shorthair captured our hearts when her grouchy face was first posted on Reddit on the 22nd of September 2012. Her recognizable frown was due to feline dwarfism and an underbite she had.

Since then, she has been the focus of sarcastic, relatable pictures. Her memes helped us say things we couldn’t say out loud. Grumpy Cat kept us laughing until her untimely death due to complications from a urinary tract infection in 2019.

Let’s honor her memory with these hilarious images.
