RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The internet famous feline who is known as "Grumpy Cat" has passed away.

A Twitter account for Grumpy said on Friday that the irritable looking but loveable cat died at home in the arms of her mom, Tabatha, on Tuesday due to complications from a recent urinary tract infection.

"Besides being our baby and a cherished member of the family, Grumpy Cat has helped millions of people smile around the world — even when times were tough. Her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere," Grumpy's Twitter account said.

Grumpy Cat, whose dwarfism and underbite give her the permanent frown she's famous for, became an online phenomenon-turned-merchandising-machine after her owner first posted pictures of her in 2012.
