Grumpy Cat achieved such a high success thanks to its unique angry face. The first photos in which the angry cat was captured appeared on the network in September 2012 and instantly became a sensation. Is it any wonder that at first no one believed in their reality, and some still doubt whether this is a photoshop.
However, Grumpy Cat is very real, lives in Arizona and bears the funny name Tard, or Tartar Sauce in its entirety. In addition to the happy owners, the Bundesen family, Tard also has a personal manager, as well as an administrator of his own site.
The most dissatisfied cat in the world cannot boast of a glorious pedigree. Grumpy Cat belongs to the most common breed of Tard, a cross between a three-colored cat of a mother and a gray striped cat of a pope. The cat received its unusual appearance as a result of a series of genetic mutations, a combination of feline dwarfism and malocclusion. Usually the Bundensens give out kittens, but this cute cat was noticed by their ten-year-old daughter, Crystal, who fell in love with her, came up with a name and left at home.
What’s so special about Grumpy Cat?
In addition to the eternally angry expression of the muzzle that personifies all the evil of the world, Grumpy Cat, when walking, laughably limps and tails its tail. The cat is very small and has problems with coordination of movements. Grumpy Kat’s back legs are slightly longer than the front, the tail is short, eyes are round, and the muzzle is too flat, but by medical standards Tard is absolutely healthy.
Grumpy Cat appears in every second demotivator, and she also released her song and starred in an ad for cat food. Forbes magazine published an “Interview” with this cat, and it was also featured on CNN, in a number of television shows and news programs. The image of an angry cat is patented. There is no need to assure that the owner of this famous cat allowed herself to quit her job, taking the honorary position of manager of her pet. The income of the Bundensen family is tens of thousands of dollars.

In October 2013 the release of the book “Grampy Book” is planned, which will include all the most popular memes, jokes and demotivators with the participation of a displeased cat. The most loyal fans of Grumpy Kat can already book a book online.
Despite the unprecedented resonance and popularity of Grumpy Cat on the Internet, its owners claim that Tard is 99% ordinary cat, and her character is not gloomy at all, but quite calm and peaceful. She is very affectionate, sweet and does not like to be angry..
