Grumpy Cat had feline dwarfism. Her owners said this is probably the reason for her facial features and small size. She became an internet celebrity in September 2012, when a family member posted photos showing her on Reddit.
She was also the “spokescat” for Friskies, and appeared on several TV shows, including Today and Good Morning America. At the time of her death, Grumpy Cat had 1.5 million followers on Twitter, 2.4 million on Instagram and 8.5 million on Facebook.
