We love cats on the internet. We’ll watch video after video of cats and cucumbers, cats being jerks, or cats falling asleep (they’re just so sleepy). Still though, there is no cat on the internet that won our hearts the way that Grumpy Cat has. Tardar Sauce made it cool to love cats on the internet. She was cutting edge, sarcastic, and cynical. Tardar Sauce is the hipster of the internet cats and everyone – even non-cat lovers— can appreciate her sass.
Often people who love cats risk being labeled “the crazy cat lady” or becoming that creepy Gargamel figure who lives alone with his cat, plotting revenge on the Smurfs. No one wants to be that guy… However, thanks to Grumpy Cat, cat lovers found an acceptable outlet for their cat obsession, and it didn’t result in neighborhood children taunting or throwing rocks at them. Rejoice, cat lovers, because we have found Grumpy Cat! Not only did she make it cool to send cat meme after cat meme to your friends, but she also made it acceptable to embrace feeling grumpy. She is the voice of our generation and she just gets it.Here are some of our favorite Grumpy Cat moments:
Grumpy Cat is a visionary. She always knows just what to say, or has that perfect insightful commentary about life for us; plus, she makes loving cats hip, which we appreciate. Thanks, Tardar Sauce! You’re a cool cat in our book.
