Today is a sad day for Internet culture and meme lovers everywhere. Grumpy Cat’s owners announced Friday that their melancholy feline had been called to the great scratching post in the sky earlier in the week from complications due to a urinary tract infection. According to her keepers, “she passed away peacefully… at home in the arms of her mommy” and they assured the public that “her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere.”
They were, of course, referring to memes.

Sometimes inside is the best side
No one can tell you how to live your life
You can’t do much with just lemons
Some sage advice
For everyone working on that summer bod
And for those who couldn’t care less
We can’t always be social
A friendly reminder
Our favourite 50 Shades sequel
Happiness should be an internal emotion
We’ll miss you Grumpy Cat!
Thank you for all of the laughs.
