Grumpy Cat, an internet celebrity for her permanent frown, died "in the arms of her mommy, Tabatha" this week, leaving behind countless online jokes about how we all feel at our worst moments, her family said on Friday. It allowed her to quit her job as a waitress at Red Lobster within days of her cat's internet debut, USA media reported.

Her death at the age of seven was due to a urinary tract infection, her Twitter account said, with the announcement, "Some days are grumpier than others".

A statement says she died on Tuesday following complications from a recent urinary tract infection.

Grumpy Cat's angry expression was the result of being born with dwarfism and an underbite.

She was invited to star-studded movie premieres, had a cameo role in Sesame Street, took part in the Hollywood Christmas parade and had her own animatronic wax likeness at Madame Tussaud's - which of course she was invited to be photographed with as it was unveiled. But that's how fame has always worked, even before the internet could make you famous overnight.

However, according to her owners, she only looked grumpy and acted like a regular cat, ninety-nine percent of the time. She showed up on NBC News' Today show, ABC News' Good Morning America, CBS Evening News, Anderson Live, VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live, E!
