Tribute To The Legendary Grumpy Cat And Lil Bub

2019 was a tough year for the cat lover community. It was in this one year that we lost two of largest cat legends that the world has ever known:

Tardar Sauce (Grumpy Cat) and Lillian Bubbles (Lil BUB). 

This is a tribute to them and their legacy. 

May they rest in peace. We'll miss you forever.

  • Tardar Sauce, famously known as “Grumpy Cat”, first became an internet sensation when that classic grumpy face was uploaded on Reddit, September 22, 2012.

  • Tardar’s owner, Tabatha Bundesen, believes Tardar was a mix of breeds: Ragdoll, Persian, Showshoe. But she wasn’t certain. She did, however, disclose that the reason behind Grumpy's permanent scowl was due to an underbite and feline dwarfism.

    And ever since uploading that unique face on Reddit, Tardar Sauce, and her permanent scowl, went viral and dominated the interwebs. You couldn't avoid seeing Grumpy Cat's adorable 'mean' mug. Tardar sauce was everywhere!


  • And the memes were endless.

  • Grumpy Cat had stolen the hearts of millions all around the globe. It was devastating and the end of an era when the news of her death broke.

    Cat - realgrumpycat View Profile Phoenix, Arizona We are unimaginably heartbroken to announce the loss of our beloved Grumpy Cat. Despite care from top professionals, as well as from her very loving family, Grumpy encountered complications from a recent urinary tract infection that unfortunately became too tough for her to overcome. She passed away peacefully on the morning of Tuesday, May 14, at home in the arms of her mommy, Tabatha. Besides being our baby and a cherished member of the family,

    Tardar Sauce died at the age of 7, Feb. 2019, due to bladder complications.

    Grumpy Cat meant so much to so many. Especially, the cat lover community, which may be the largest community on the internet.

    We will never forget her and her grumpy face.

    May she rest in peace, we love you so much Tardar Sauce.




  • Lillian Bubbles, better known as “Lil Bub,” actually went viral before Tardar Sauce. Her owner, Mike Bridavsky, first uploaded a video titled “good job bub” on YouTube, by user LilBubBub. That same day, the Lil Bub Tumblr blog was launched.

  • Like Tardar Sauce, Lil Bub also had a very recognizable face. Lil Bub was the runt of her litter, and had quite a few genetic complications. Lil Bub was known to be a “perma-kitten,” a cat with dwarfism (just like Tardar)--

    but Lil Bub also had polydactylism and a disformed lower jaw.


  • However, it was due to all those complications that made the world fall hopelessly in love with Lil Bub and her inability to contain her tongue within her mouth.

    Goodbye Lil Bub, we will forever miss you and your happy spirit.





  • Both cats may said goodbye but they will never be forgotten for what they are, legendary cats of the internet who made a difference. They will always be remembered for their donations, inspiration, and the endless love and joy they spread to us all.
