No doubt about it, cats can be grumpy, little things. As cat lovers, we’re used to the ire that can flash across the feline mood in a heartbeat. How can we not be? Cats do tend to get annoyed quite easily and some of you probably have the healing cat scratch scabs to prove it! Ah, but we love our ornery cats and as the original Grumpy Cat proved, the rest of the world digs a moody feline too!

Her actual name may have been Tardar Sauce, but this special cat earned the Grumpy Cat title thanks to her permanent frown. She also had a knack for narrowing her eyes in such a way, her disgust for all things became plainly written. And that famous feline face we love so much launched a million memes that made everyone laugh. Though she’s gone too soon, Grumpy Cat’s legacy will live on in our hearts and social media feeds. As she frowns down upon us from her spot over the Rainbow Bridge, let’s honor the great grumpy one with a gallery of her angry feline brethren! #GrumpyCatForever
