How Old Is Grumpy Cat? Lifetime's 'Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever' Has Made her a TV Movie Star
By now we all know that Lifetime's newest foray into holiday films includes a Christmas reunion of En Vogue and a movie about Grumpy Cat. Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever stars Aubrey Plaza as the voice of the titular cat and follows the little frustrated feline as she finally finds a friend in the form of a 12-year-old girl named Chrystal, who, surprisingly enough, can actually hear little Grumpy Cat's voice. Together, cat and friend somehow thwart a kidnapping and hopefully, she'll learn the "true meaning of Christmas." Now here's the thing. This movie sounds absolutely ridiculous. But, the Grumpy Cat herself is absolutely adorable. So what do we really know about the real feline? How old is Grumpy Cat? What is she really like?
For those who don't know what Grumpy Cat is, you should get out from the rock you've been living under, because this cat is a worldwide phenomenon. The real cat's name is not Grumpy Cat, though that would be hilarious. It's actually Tardar Sauce. According to her official website (yup, that's right) she was born on April 4, 2012 and became famous in September 2012 after her photo popped up on Reddit and went totally and completely viral.
After it was suggested on that same Reddit post that Tardar Sauce was photoshopped, the family decided to post videos on YouTube of the little kitty and she blew up on the world wide web. At the moment, Tardar Sauce, aka Grumpy, is a little over two years old and has seen and done more in the world than I have at my ripe old age of 25. Now don't I feel self-conscious.
Now that Tardar Sauce is poised to become a movie star, where else should she start popping up? I don't know about you guys, but I'd love to have her co-host The Soup with Joel McHale for a few episodes, she would definitely do the best reaction shots to all of the crazy stuff that happens on the Internet. Or what if she and Aubrey Plaza were to perform a one-woman, one-cat show on or off Broadway? As long as the grumpy little kitty and Plaza get artistic license to say and do whatever they want, that's a show I would empty my entire bank account to go see. Multiple times. I think we've got a million dollar idea on our hands. What do you say, Tardar Sauce?
