People were so amazed with this cat that she appeared on NBC News Tonight Show right after her first meme. Her owner, Tabatha Bundesen, and Grumpy Cats “Manger,”,Ben Lashes, both had made this cat popular. Over the following years, she became more popular.

Grumpy Cat has her own calendar, books, and even a movie. Everything was going well for her until that fateful day on May 14th, 2019.
