Default Celebrity Death - Grumpy Cat

Tardar Sauce the cat, known for his role as "Grumpy Cat" and also "Miserable looking cat" has passed away at the age of 7.

Earnings estimates are sketchy for the cat, but it did top the Forbes list of "Top Pet Influencers" in 2017.

Shockingly I heard that fracking cat made $100 million in revenue. I was hoping that it was the harbringer of the end of humanity.

He looked like that because he was deformed, probably contributed to his death. Plus his owners had him going all over the place.

Personification or anthropomorphism or whatever the correct term is has always bothered me this cat was not "grumpy" at all. Don't get me wrong I'm sure it lived a pampered life but I still don't like artificially pushing human traits onto animals.

Travel is stressful on animals so if they were flying all the time I could see this taking a toll on him as well being placed constantly in front of strangers in strange places.

According to Dr. Nicola Painter of the Manhattan Cat Specialists, feline dwarfism can drastically reduce a cat’s life expectancy, and Grumpy’s tender age of seven is considered ‘about an average life span for a cat with dwarfism.’

‘It’s likely that Grumpy Cat had to be euthanized during the final stages of her urinary tract infection (UTI), and subsequent kidney infection,’ Painter said to DailyMail.com.

‘It’s not unusual for dwarf cats to pass suddenly. Even in regular cats, for kidney infections we give 50/50 odds of survival because it’s notoriously difficult to treat.’

Painter added that with UTI’s, often there are no or very minor symptoms before the cat suddenly falls very ill.

‘Feline dwarfism doesn’t directly affect a cat’s immune system, but bone and cartilage growth – which is impacted by the condition – is linked to kidney development.

'This means Grumpy was likely more susceptible to infection than other cats, because he kidney were probably underdeveloped.

‘It seems Grumpy Cat received the best care possible and was very well looked after, but unfortunately there are so many medical complications with feline dwarfism, sufferers just don’t live as long.’
