Grumpy Cat, who was aged 7, was one of four kittens. According to her owner Tabitha Bundsen, the unique scowl that made her an internet meme was caused by feline dwarfism and an underbite. Grumpy Cat has a serious social media following with  1.5 million followers on Twitter and over 2 million on Instagram.

Meow, our old friend, meow. Your grumpy little face put a smile on the face of many people.
