You’ve all seen the latest internet kitty sensation — a small cat whose frown will never be turned upside down! Grumpy Cat looks like she is having a bad day, every day. But is she really?
Let’s get some facts straight about Grumpy Cat. For one, this is a she kitty! Her real name is Tardar Sauce (because the family’s daughter did not yet know how to spell tartar sauce), and at less than a year old, she is still a kitten. And while she looks like some warped, cartoonish version of a Snowshoe cat, her parents are actually a very normal looking calico mom and a gray tabby and white dad. Tard (as her family calls her — no joking!) has a black and white brother with the same squat build, but without the scowl. She may be some sort of genetic or neurological mutation, but since she is healthy, her humans don’t want to subject her to unnecessary tests.
But here’s the Million Dollar question: is Grumpy Cat really grumpy? Watch this short video clip of her and you tell me. I think you may be surprised!
