Internet Sensation ‘Grumpy Cat’ Wins An Award
A cat that became an internet sensation due to the apparently grumpy looking expression on her face has won an award.
Grumpy Cat, real name Tardar Sauce, was handed a Lifetime Achievement Award at The Friskies in New York. Owner Tabatha Bundesen was presented with a gold-plated cat-shaped statue at the cat food brand’s second annual cat video awards. The award was given to the seemingly moody feline for "doing the most to help cats take over the internet".
According to Tabatha the 1-year-old pet cat’s permanently grumpy-looking face is actually due to feline dwarfism. Grumpy Cat became an internet sensation after her picture was posted to the social news website Reddit by Tabatha’s brother Bryan last year. The image went viral and now Tardar has her very own Facebook page, with over 1.3 million likes, Twitter account, with 116,000 followers, and has launched a new book.
