Hers was the face that launched a thousand memes (give or take a few hundred) plus three hardback books, several comic books (also featuring her brother, Pokey), Little Golden Books, “nope” books, t-shirts, mugs, and even her own Lifetime Original Movie Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever. Of course, we’re talking about Tardar Sauce, a.k.a Grumpy Cat, the most famous cat on planet earth. The first photo of her was posted on Reddit on September 22, 2012, and total world domination soon followed.

P.S. Yes, she is a female.

What Grumpy Cat Memes Mean

Everyone has days of feeling downright grouchy, or dare we say grumpy, where everything and everyone is annoying, and the only emotion you can muster is a NO. Grumpy Cat memes capture that everything is awful mood we all have from time to time and express the grumpy thoughts that, if said out loud, would likely get us fired from our jobs, deserted by our friends, and locked out of the house by our family.

How Grumpy Cat Memes Are Used

Grumpy Cat memes are used for darn near every occasion where something or someone could cause a person to develop a case of the grumps. Another great use is to commiserate with a fellow human who is having an I hate everything moment. You can try to cheer them up with a Grumpy Cat meme. However, they shine when used for sarcasm and a mutual dislike for, well, everything.
