Default Grumpy Cat dead world mourns

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/17/b...-cat-dead.html


"Grumpy Cat, the ubiquitous internet celebrity whose permanent scowl spoke for all of us in our darkest moments, died in the arms of her “mommy” on Tuesday, her family said on Friday. She was 7.
The cat, whose actual name is Tardar Sauce and who hailed from Arizona, died after complications arose from a urinary tract infection..."

That's too bad. Seven is awfully young for a cat. I remember reading that his face might be considered a curse, but it made him a celebrity, and his owners liked to point out that he was actually a very sweet and playful cat.

So long, Tard the Grumpy Cat.

I was so sad, when I read about it earlier

I have had so many hours of laughing.

He will surely be missed.

I love cats, it is a bit sad, too young! Hopefully the owners get over it soon, they just have to get another.

Awww ... So sad.



We had to have one of our cats put down a couple of months ago, but it feels like yesterday. She was 14 years old. It's heartbreaking.

^ I agree... after our three went, two of them around the same time, we decided we couldn't bear it again... so we never got another one

But that's the way it is for all the living so you just have to deal with it positively. Death is part of life for everyone, and everything and yes, it hurts, but the joy is also great.

Yes I agree, I have had at least a dozen cats, some died peacefully but others not, as long as I live I will have a cat.
