Grumpy Cat, Too Cute To Ignore
I have always been an animal lover, but I have never owned a cat. My mom had a bad experience as a child with a cat and she never got over it. We always had dogs. One day I came across a gift idea for my niece and it was of Grumpy Cat. The name immediately struck me as funny and the expression of the cat was priceless. It may me wonder when did the Grumpy Cat phenomena begin and just who his that adorable face named Grumpy?
Grumpy Cat was born on April 4, 2012, but she entered the world named Tardar Sauce. According to Fox News Grumpy Cat became an internet sensation after her photo was posted on Facebook and Reddit by Grumpy’s owner’s brother Brian Bundeson. After the picture was posted it was up voted more than 25,300 times. Her appearance is the result of an under bite and a form of dwarfism. In the eyes of the world those imperfections of nature are really blessings and show her true beauty. A star was born and Grumpy is turning up in more and more places.
The Facts on Grumpy
No one is sure about her breed, but her mom is a calico and her dad (if indeed he is her dad) has grey and white stripes. Her owner says she may have some Persian, Ragdoll, or Snowshoe in her lineage. Below are pictures of her parents her mom Callie and her dad.
Grumpy has feline dwarfism which keeps her small and adorable.

The greatest thing to happen in Grumpy Cat’s career is a movie made by the Lifetime network entitled
Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas ever it aired on Lifetime November 29, 2014. The movie is about Grumpy Cat an animal in the pet store that is cranky because she is never chosen to be any ones pet. A girl named Chrystal enters the pet shop and she too is lonely. Grumpy and Chrystal are both surprised they can understand each other and a bond develops between them. This movie may not have received rave review, but it is very entertaining and Grumpy Cat is simply mesmerizing. After seeing the movie, a movie like none I have seen before, I became a Grumpy Cat fan. The girl can do no wrong.
