It all began (as most internet sensations do) with a picture casually uploaded onto Reddit. A picture of a cat called Tardar Sauce, who just happens to have a particularly grumpy face. Naturally it led to endless photo-shopping and "memery" and within no time the imaginatively named Grumpy Cat was born.
Cats have been the undisputed currency of the internet for the last decade so its rapid rise to fame is really no surprise. Thousands of twitter followers, millions of Facebook friends; Grumpy Cat even won BuzzFeed's 'Meme of the Year' award – is there a more prestigious accolade? Now this miserable internet sensation has been recreated as a preposterously soft plush toy.
Complete with judgemental eyes and her trademark upturned mouth, cuddle up with this scowling replica and enjoy a fluffy feline reminder to cheer the hell up.
