The internet sensation known as Grumpy Cat has died, her owners have revealed.

The world-famous cat passed away on Tuesday “at home in the arms of her mommy, Tabatha,” a statement posted on Friday said.

“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,” it continued.

“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.”

Grumpy Cat, who has more than 2m followers on Instagram, rose to fame after a photograph of her was posted to Reddit in September 2012.

She has since inspired thousands of memes, made TV appearances and starred in commercials as the face of Honey Nut Cheerios, and Friskies cat food in the US.

Bryan Bundesen, the brother of her owner Tabatha Bundesen from Morristown, Arizona, posted the picture of Tartar Sauce pointing out her permanently disgruntled expression.

Social media users have reshared photos of her unimpressed face ever since.
