You have seen her on Facebook, Twitter, and online forums in thousands of hilarious meme's and now she has fans flocking to get in line, in the rain just to see her and person at the SXSW festival in Austin,Texas.
She is not a Kardashian or from Twilight, she is a cat, a big, old, sweet girl who has earned the name, "Grumpy Cat' due to her constant sourpuss frown that is always on her face.
Sitting on a small bed in her tent, where she was dry and warm, hundreds of people waited in the rain, in a very long line just to see this furry feline and get a picture with her.
More Grumpy Cat
Grumpy Cat, whose real name is Tardar Sauce, they call her Tard, took over the internet with her grumpy face when her owners, Bryan and Tabatha Bundsen decided to post a picture they took of her, on Reddit just for kicks.
Bryan told ABC;
"She was lying in my lap and she looked extremely grumpy so I decided to put it on Reddit, it went viral and I never expected it."
Viral indeed, people started taking Tard's picture, and adding funny quotes, text, on it and sharing everywhere online.
The Twitter site has over 401,000 followers and now Tard, a regular house pet, is an internet star.
Bryan and Tabatha adopted Tard's mom and on April 4 of last year Tard was born.
She has the grumpy face, that never goes away, not because she is an unhappy cat, but because she has feline dwarfism, and that causes her to have small sighs and stiff backlegs, and to have the sad, grumpy pout.
Bryan said, "other than that she is a healthy and happy cat."
The Grumpy Cat meme's have helped Tard become a television star as well, she and her owners, have gotten a deal with the cat food company, friskies, and will have a commercial that will be out soon.
The Bundsen's have a manager for Tard as well and she had a press conference at the festival and she will be on display as well for a few hours at a time.
The Bundsen's have used their pet's feline fame as a good thing as well and have contributed to Austin Pets Alive, which is a no kill shelter in their area.
People have gotten upset with them saying they are exploiting Tard and they need oto let her just be a pet, but the Bundsens disagree;
"A lot of people think we are exploiting the cat, we limit her exposure greatly, She is only here for an hour at a time. Ninety-nine percent of the time she is just a regular cat. She is not front of the camera at all times, she is a normal house cat and we love her."
Tard does not seem to be as unhappy as she looks either and many of the loyal fans who got soaked in the rain appreciate that the Bundsens and Tard allowed them to meet her.
