Internet celebrity Grumpy Cat, the face of countless memes, has died at the age of 7, her owners confirmed Friday.

Grumpy Cat real name Tardar Sauce shot to fame as a figurehead of online culture thanks to her permanent frown apparently signaling displeasure at anything and everything.

The official Grumpy Cat Twitter account announced that she died on Tuesday due to complications from a recent urinary tract infection.

"Grumpy Cat has helped millions of people smile around the world even when times were tough," the statement said.

First it was Tim Conway, now Grumpy Cat. It's been a bad week.

I'm sure any good taxidermist can take care of this small problem.

A friend's Uncle was a taxidermist. He stuffed the first thing my buddy ever shot hunting, a rather puny grey squirrel. He mounted on a branch on a wooden pedestal with it's right paw extended up, topped off by an acorn in it's teeth.

It stayed that way for a couple of years, until the acorn fell out. He decided he liked it better that way, dubbed it "Attack Squirrel", and "Attack Squirrel" it remained. Without that acorn that squirrel went from something we gave him a hard time about to looking pretty badass for a squirrel.

I wonder what happened to that squirrel?
