Tardar Sauce was born on April the 4th, 2012 and has recently been nicknamed Grumpy Cat. Tardar Sauce is a female cat and is an internet celebrity known for her grumpy facial expression.
Her owner, Tabatha Bundesen, claims that Tardar Sauce’s amazingly grumpy-looking face is due to feline dwarfism. Grumpy Cat’s popularity first originated from a picture which was posted to the social news website Reddit, by Tabatha’s brother Bryan, on September the 22nd, 2012. The picture was made into an image macro with grumpy captions. On Facebook “The Official Grumpy Cat” has over three million “likes”. Grumpy Cat was featured on the front page of “The Wall Street Journal”, on May the 30th, 2013 and on the cover of the “New York Magazine”, on October the 7th, 2013.
The Bundesens say that Tardar Sauce’s face looks grumpy because of feline dwarfism and an under bite. She and her brother Pokey were born to ordinary parents with “a flat face, bubble eyes and a short tail”. Tardar Sauce is a very small cat and has hind legs that “are a bit different”. Surprisingly, Tardar Sauce is calm and “actually really nice”, whereas Pokey has a grumpy character!
