Sorry, McKayla Maroney, your reign over the "not impressed" face has ended. Meet the new sourpuss that has caught the attention of the Internet and its meme-makers.
This unhappy-looking cat is named Tardar Sauce. Aside from the fact that "Tard" (as she is known, for short) has a permanently grumpy mug, little is know about the adorable, frustrated feline.
The original Reddit poster, Cataliades, said that Tard was rescued by the Redditor's family. The hard-luck cat has dwarfism and other genetic defects due to reckless inbreeding by breeders.
Tardar Sauce has been working her way through the Web, thanks to a series of photos posted on Reddit and a few YouTube videos. We wish this kitty the best of luck with her newfound fame — clearly she has a bright future.
The mystery surrounding Tard hasn't stopped users from giving her a voice. "Grumpy Cat" is becoming the new animal meme of the moment, with text like, "I tried to sits. It didn't fits."
ONE WITH NATURE
Not even a little fresh air can turn this frown upside down.
No matter what kind of mood a kitty is in, she never forgets proper hygiene.
IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY
Grumpy Cat's slightly less unhappy sister makes family portraits extra fun.
THE GREAT BEYOND
It should be no surprise that Grumpy Cat is one of those felines who always thinks the grass is greener on the other side.
Cyndi Lauper was wrong; this girl doesn't want to have any fun.
STAND BY ME
No need to feel offended! Grumpy Cat doesn't choose favorites ... she dislikes everyone equally.
IT'S A MIRACLE
Behold! The rare moment where Grumpy Cat does not live up to her name.
WHAT YOU LOOKING AT?
It should be no surprise that Grumpy Cat considers the angst-filled "Taxi Driver" to be one of her favorite films.
"Snuggle? I do not know the meaning of the word."
YING AND YANG
Grumpy Cat doesn't get along with those who see the food bowl as always being half full.
The Maxine of catdom ;)
