Grumpy Cat became an internet sensation after her photo was posted on Reddit on September 22, 2012. It was suggested that the original photo was photoshopped, so we posted a few videos on YouTube. The videos went viral and we decided to start GrumpyCats.com
We aren’t exactly sure about Grumpy Cats breed; but she looks nothing like her mother or father. She looks similar to a Ragdoll or Showshoe; but there have never been any of that breed around the house. Her mom is a calico domestic short hair cat and her father has grey and white stripes. (Though I suppose there could be a different father, promiscuous cats you know…)
She visited the vet at the beginning of October and they said she is healthy. They said her shape and size could be genetic or neurological and that they could do test to determine which; but since she is healthy we decided not to poke and prod her. If she seems ill we may look further into it; but she will receive regular checkups!

Tardar Sauce (born April 4, 2012), better known by her Internet moniker "Grumpy Cat", is a cat and Internet celebrity known for her grumpy facial expression.[1][2][3][4]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grumpy_Cat
Her owner, Tabatha Bundesen, says that her permanently grumpy-looking face is due to an underbite and feline dwarfism.[1][5][6] Grumpy Cat's popularity originated from a picture posted to the social news website Reddit by Bundesen's brother Bryan on September 22, 2012.[1][7][8] It was made into an image macro with grumpy captions. As of December 10, 2014, "The Official Grumpy Cat" on Facebook has over 7 million "likes".[9] Grumpy Cat was featured on the front page of The Wall Street Journal on May 30, 2013 and on the cover of New York magazine on October 7, 2013.

Background[edit]
The Bundesens say that Tardar Sauce's face appears grumpy because the feline has a form of dwarfism.[12] She and her brother Pokey were born to normal parents with "a flat face, bubble eyes, and a short tail".[12] Tardar Sauce is undersized and has hind legs that "are a bit different".[1][6] Although she has a grumpy expression on her face and is called "Grumpy Cat", according to the Bundesens, Tardar Sauce is a normal cat "99% of the time".[1][6][13] Photo sessions are only once a week, and handling by strangers is limited.[1] At South by Southwest (SXSW) Tardar Sauce made limited two-hour appearances each day as Grumpy Cat.[14]

Management[edit]
Ben Lashes is Grumpy Cat's manager who also represents Keyboard Cat and Nyan Cat.[15][16] Bundesen took a leave of absence from her day job at Red Lobster to manage Grumpy Cat's schedule and Bryan manages her website, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.[4][7][10][13]

According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office database, "Grumpy Cat Limited" applied to trademark "Grumpy Cat" and an image of her at the end of January 2013.[17] Licensed merchandise like t-shirts and mugs are advertised on the website and sold at Hot Topic.[1][15] Stuffed toys are under development.[15] Bryan said that by March 2013 they earned "mid-five figures"[7] and "low-six-figure" by May 2013.[10] The corporation has an estimated value of $1 million.[4] Grenade Beverage LLC makes Grumpy Cat "Grumppuccino" iced coffee beverages.[10][18][19]

Recognition[edit]
MSNBC named Grumpy Cat 2012's most influential cat.[20]
Grumpy Cat won BuzzFeed's Meme of the Year Award at the 2013 Webby Awards.[21][22]
Grumpy Cat won first prize Golden Kitty at the second annual Internet Cat Video Film Festival.[23][24]
Grumpy Cat won a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2013 Friskies.[25]
Book and calendar[edit]
The official Grumpy Cat book Grumpy Cat: A Grumpy Book was published on July 23, 2013 by Chronicle Books.[10] The book is available in both print and digital formats from retailers worldwide. It debuted at #8 Hardcover Nonfiction on the Publishers Weekly best seller list and #7 on the New York Times Best Seller List.[26][27]

Additionally, Chronicle Books published The Grumpy Cat 2014 Wall Calendar on July 23, 2013.[28]

Grumpy Cat promoted Grumpy Cat: A Grumpy Book at BookExpo America.[10] She attended her book's launch at Kitson and The Grove's Barnes & Noble in Los Angeles.[32][33] In 2014, she appeared in a television commercial for Honey Nut Cheerios.[34] She also appeared on the season finale of The Bachelorette and was a special guest on the November 17 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw.[35]

Grumpy Cat met Lil Bub at the second annual Internet Cat Video Film Festival at the Minnesota State Fair in August 2013.

Friskies[edit]
Grumpy Cat appeared in episodes of the Friskies YouTube game show "Will Kitty Play With It?"[6][36][37][38] TMZ reported that Friskies paid for flying first class, a private hotel room with king-sized bed, a personal assistant, a chauffeur, and unlimited Friskies food and bottled water.[36] Bryan Bundesen said the car was a BMW X5 with tinted windows.[10] On March 22, 2013, Grumpy Cat traveled to New York City promoting the show and appeared on Good Morning America[30] and Anderson Live[31] and visited Time for a photoshoot.[39] Michael Noer "interviewed" Grumpy Cat for Forbes, released March 25.[40]

2013 SXSW Interactive[edit]
In March 2013, Grumpy Cat attended SXSW Interactive, hosted at the Mashable House.[6][7][41] Friskies paid travel expenses to Austin in order to film "Will Kitty Play With It?"[10][36] CNN, CBS, and CNET called Grumpy Cat the undisputed "biggest star" of SXSW Interactive over Elon Musk, Al Gore, and Neil Gaiman.[7][42][43] Over 600[39] fans, including Dennis Crowley, waited for hours in the line, which was nearly three blocks long, to take a photo.[6][7][44] Ian Somerhalder took photos with Grumpy Cat and called her "my new love", "very peaced out", "sweet as pumpkin pie", and "kind of amazing".[45][46][47][48][49]

Grumpy Cat appears in Lil Bub & Friendz, a documentary premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 18, 2013 and won the Tribeca Online Festival Best Feature Film.[15][50][51][52] In May 2013, Broken Road Productions optioned Grumpy Cat for a "Garfield-like feature film" adaptation.[10][20][53][54] Producer Todd Garner said "We think we can build a big family comedy around this character."[20]
