Tweets About Grumpy Cat In Heaven Are A Heartwarming, Hilarious Tribute To The Icon
"Some days are grumpier than others," Grumpy Cat's family wrote in a message on Twitter this morning, because, sadly, Grumpy Cat has died. The perpetually frowning cat was seven years old, according to People. In response to the news, many people are mourning the world-famous cat with tweets of their own, including, in particular, tweets imagining what the afterlife will be like for Grumpy Cat.
According to Grumpy Cat's family, she died of complications from a urinary tract infection on Tuesday, May 14. "Despite care from top professionals, as well as from her very loving family, Grumpy encountered complications from a recent urinary tract infection that unfortunately became too touch for her to overcome," Grumpy's family, Tabitha, Bryan, and Chrystal, wrote in their statement. "She passed away peacefully on the morning of Tuesday, May 14, at home in the arms of her mommy, Tabitha."
The statement concludes, "Her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere."
While many fans are sharing straightforward messages about how sad they are or telling the cat also known as Tardar Sauce to rest in peace, some fans are imagining how the cat would grumpily react to heaven and who she would meet there.
Grumpy Cat has seen it all, the Rainbow Bridge isn't going to impress her.
The other cats are really in for a treat. (Not a literal treat, although one can assume they have plenty of those in cat heaven, too.)
