    Internet sensation Grumpy Cat has died

    The internet's favorite feline, Grumpy Cat, has died at the age of 7, according to her family.

    “We are unimaginably heartbroken to announce the loss of our beloved Grumpy Cat,” read a statement released early Friday on Twitter. “Despite care from top professionals, as well as from her very loving family, Grumpy encountered complications from a recent urinary tract infection that unfortunately became too tough for her to overcome. She passed away peacefully on the morning of Tuesday, May 14, at home in the arms of her mommy, Tabatha. Besides being our baby and a cherished member of the family, Grumpy Cat has helped millions of people smile all around the world — even when times were tough. Her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere.”

    The racial profile thread had way more comedy potential Than this one.

    WOW. What run though. Went from 0 to $100 million real quick. Gave my sister a grumpy cat stuffed animal which she takes with her everywhere. Sad day. Grumpy was a mega sensation.

    Rip cat.

    Couldn't they just replace him with an identical cat and say nothing? That is what they did with Morris.

    Out of an instagram pic?

    Mugs, t shirts, stuff cat toys, a Lifetime movie, etc. I'm still surprised though.

    And this is why I take hundreds of thousands of pics of my cats. I keep hoping one of them is going to do something funny and make me rich. It hasn't happened yet. My cats don't hold up their end of the deal... they are welfare cats, nothing but cute fuzzy purring adorable leeches.

    You remember THIS actress from Bewitched, I'm sure?

    She looked more like this in makeup, though:

    Some of these cats on instagram have over 200,000 followers. They get cat-related sponsors and ad-revenue for sure. Definitely making dough. It is a lot of work though. Some of them are very entertaining :emoji_smile_cat:

    Ya, it was just a cat, but it made for a few laughs now and then in an otherwise miserable world.
    Safe passage across the Rainbow Bridge "Grumpy Cat"
