Grumpy Cat, whose real name is Tardar Sauce, made her first viral appearances in 2012 when she was still a kitten. Since then, Grumpy Cat has been in ads for pet food brands, ads for breakfast cereals, and even her own Lifetime Christmas movie: 

When she first hit the internet, disbelievers were convinced that the pictures of her were Photoshopped. When more memes and videos hit the scene, we were all convinced.

We’re going to miss you Grumpy Cat. This one goes out to you. Thank you for the laughs:
