One year ago today, the internet was in mourning after Grumpy Cat’s owner revealed the famous moggy had died.
Tabatha Bundesen and her brother Bryan revealed that – despite some of the best veterinary care – the cat encountered complications from a urinary tract infection which “became too tough for her to overcome”.
She passed away at home “in the arms of her mummy”, her family said in a statement on social media.
The seven-year-old cat, who found fame thanks to her uniquely unhappy look – caused by an underbite and feline dwarfism – became an online sensation in 2012 after Bryan posted a photo of her on Reddit. She accrued 2.4 million followers on Instagram, who religiously tracked her updates.
In memory of Grumpy Cat, here are some of her best photos.
