Tabatha — who stop her waitressing job quickly after her kitty turned well-known, because of all of the trademarked Grumpy Cat merchandise — additionally wrote: “Her spirit will proceed to reside on by her followers all over the place.” Sure certainly.

The legendary cat behind the meme could also be gone, however Grumpy Cat will proceed to entertain folks without end. We are able to make countless memes, attributing pithy quotes and a snarky perspective to her face. We are able to watch the 2014 TV film Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever time and again. We are able to drink out of our Grumpy Cat espresso mugs.

As for me, I’ll smile each time I take a look at the plush Grumpy Cat hooked up to my living-room window with suction cups — and picture what she’d need to say about idiots. Grumpy Cat without end!
