An unusual cat, born of completely ordinary mongrel parents, became popular all over the world in one day. How did this cat attract the attention of millions of people?
We will tell you in this post about the unusual cat, which became known to everyone under the name of “Grumpy Cat” (Tard) – the world’s saddest cat.
Grumpy cat (sad cat) – who is it?
The sad cat whose picture you see is a female cat. This cat has already died but has remained in the hearts of the entire Internet.
The owners of the unusual cat gave her the name Tardar Sauce (Tard). Interesting name, choose for your cat too from the list of original names for a girl cat.
The kitty was born in 2012. The cat’s daddy and mommy are regular, mongrel house cats. Of all the kittens born that day, only 2 were anything special, including Tard. The second kitty was different only in that it had short pedigree paws (like a munchkin) and an appearance similar to the Burmese breed (like a Tard cat).
Unusual “facial features” of a cat (the corners of the muzzle are downwards) are a congenital pathology, which is associated with some other congenital problems of the animal. Because of the dwarfism gene, the cat has some physiological problems that have little effect on its existence. Some clumsiness (when walking, due to problems with the hind legs), fear of heights, and a disgruntled expression on its face are what distinguish the cat from its brethren.
When the cat was born, the owners were quite concerned that the kitten was so unhappy, they even took him to the vet. But the vet dispelled their doubts by assuring them that the cat was not suffering from any depression. He suggested that the cat’s facial expressions had been passed down from her genes.
The cat’s face has such an unusual discontented expression that it seems as if it is offended at the whole world.
That’s why the nickname “Sad Cat” became her name. No matter what the people around her try to do, the facial expressions on the disgruntled cat’s face remain the same. Although, if you’re interested and want to see an angry cat more cheerful, then watch the video below, where she opens her mouth to play. There her expression is much more cheerful, you can tell she’s laughing.
The cat with the unhappy face is quite content with life and knows how to have fun. She knows how to cuddle, loves to pamper and hide, and loves to be stroked on her tummy.
Where did the popularity of the sad cat begin?
The Internet star’s dizzying career began for several reasons:
- The birth of an unusual cat with congenital abnormalities that made her popular. It turned out to be like the proverb (wasn’t for bad luck, wouldn’t have no luck at all).
- Photo of a cat. Interest in the world’s sulliest cat emerged as soon as a photo of the cat (posted by the owner’s brother) appeared on the Internet. Millions of users of the World Wide Web were “glued” to the photo of an angry cat, dissatisfied with life. At first, people thought it was a photoshop. The owner of the cat did not like such an accusation. He rushed to prove that the cat was real by posting a video on YouTube. That’s when the video stories about her appeared, there was no trace of doubts left.
- News and television shootings. The cat has been the subject of many news stories, videos of which can be seen on the Internet.
- A cat food commercial featuring Grumpy cat.
- Popularity on the Internet. The cat has its own social media pages, where the number of “likes” grows daily. Choose a funny nickname for your Scottish cat, too.
- Grumpy cat has been named the most influential cat on MSNBC.
- In 2013, the Angriest Cat was awarded the Webby Awards.
