Grumpy Cat, the famous internet cat with a face that appears to be grumpy, has passed away at the age of seven.

The cat’s family announced her passing on her Twitter account on Friday afternoon.

“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,” it read.

“Besides being our baby and a cherished member of the family, Grumpy Cat has helped millions of people smile around the world – even when times were tough.

“Her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere.”

Grumpy Cat was born on 4 April 2012 in Morristown, Arizona, United States. Her grumpy face was caused by an underbite and feline dwarfism.
