Grumpy Cat, whose sourpuss demeanour became an internet sensation, has died at age 7.

In 2013, Grumpy Cat owner Tabatha Bundesen partnered with Grenade Beverage to market a line of iced coffees called Grumpy Cat Grumppuccino using the cat's image.

With 1.5 million followers on Twitter, the demise of Grumpy Cat leaves many social media users more than a little morose.

"She passed away peacefully on the morning of Tuesday, May 14, at home in the arms of her mommy, Tabatha".

Proving once again that there is nothing good about 2019, the internet woke up Friday morning to the news of Grumpy Cat's passing, the viral pet known for its resting grouch face.

Grumpy Cat's angry expression was the result of being born with dwarfism and an underbite. Tardar Sauce aka Grumpy Cat didn't survive due to the complications arose from a urinary tract infection as mentioned by her family on social media.

In 2016, Grumpy Cat appeared on Broadway for one night only in - what else?

"Grumpy cat will always be a legend in my heart".

Grumpy Cat poses with fans at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards at Nokia Theatre LA Live on 13 April 2014 in Los Angeles, California.

The cat - real name was Tardar Sauce - rose to fame after photos were posted online in 2012.

Grumpy Cat's star started to fade in recent years, especially after the lukewarm response to Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever, which co-starred comedian Aubrey Plaza. "Her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere", wrote Grumpy's family on her official Instagram handle.
