MORRISTOWN, Arizona (AP) -- Grumpy Cat, whose sourpuss expression entertained millions on the internet, has died at age 7.
Her owners wrote on social media on May 17 that she experienced complications from a urinary tract infection and "passed away peacefully" on May 14 "in the arms of her mommy."
Her owners said "Grumpy Cat has helped millions of people smile all around the world -- even when times were tough."
The cat's real name was Tardar Sauce, and she rose to fame after her photos were posted online in 2012. She had more than 8 million followers on Facebook and more than 2.5 million on Instagram.
