The familiar and disdainful glare of Grumpy Cat is no more.

Never again will we see her likes again, her intransigent and indignant looks, her put-upon manners. It's all over. Tardar Sauce, for that was Grumpy Cat's true name, passed away on Tuesday following complications from a recent urinary tract infection.

Her owner, Tabatha Bundesen, released a formal statement via Twitter this morning, confirming the terrible news that Grumpy Cat was no more. According to Ms. Bundesen, the reason for Grumpy Cat's permanent scowl was not because the feline had full knowledge of the worsening state of our world, or understood the true nature that life is suffering and art is pain.

No, it turns out that the cat looked so angry simply because it suffered from a variant of dwarfism.

Fare thee well, Grumpy Cat. Your watch has ended.
