    That's too bad. Such a young age for a cat.

    Indeed. She had dwarfism and health complications all of her life and I think the money made from her various endorsement deals helped finance the vet care that had kept her alive this long.

    I once had a dwarf cat who looked and acted healthy without any of the impediments Grumpy Cat had, but to our shock she died in her sleep at a similarly young age.

    I also had a disabled Manx kitten born to a rescued stray. Two of the kittens had extraordinarily long tails and two had no tails. The ones who lacked tails had many health problems, because the characteristic lack of tail for the Manx breed is actually due to a form of Spina Bifida. One of them had many urinary tract infections and died despite all our vet tried to do for him and round the clock care from my parents and myself. That sounds like what happened to Grumpy Cat.

    Everyone in our family loved Grumpy Cat. We have a book and plushies and key chains and even an actual painting my daughter did a few years ago. This kitty was a unique little soul. With all the ugliness in social media, she was such a bright light despite being a harbinger of grouchiness.

    In reality, she was said to actually be a happy and good natured cat. As someone who suffers from severe resting b*face myself, despite being good natured and easygoing, I declared her my spirit animal. My forum name was inspired by her.
