Tardar Sauce, known as Grumpy Cat, has passed away.
Grumpy Cat's owners shared the following statement on @realgrumpycat's Instagram early Friday morning with the caption, "Some days are grumpier than others":
"We are unimaginably heartbroken to announce the loss of our beloved Grumpy Cat. 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 tough for her to overcome. She passed away peacefully on the morning of Tuesday, May 14, at home in the arms of her mommy, Tabatha. Besides being our baby and a cherished member of the family, Grumpy Cat has helped millions of people smile all around the world - even when times were tough. Her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere."
The high profile celebrity made an appearance at Mall of America last year. She amassed a fortune of $100 million for her social media career and other opportunities.
