Her name was really Tard - short for Tardar Sauce and her beloved family put out this tweet.  Anyone who has ever loved a kitty knows their pain and how hard they tried to save her.  However, the bright side is Grumpy Cat will be mourned by millions and remembered and re-posted a million times to come. You can even visit her image in Madame Trousseau Museum in New York City.  A short life this kitty had by comparison to yours or mine but she will live on as a part of our pop culture forever. R.I.P/ Tard we love you.

Here is just some of the joy she brought.
