The Title Of ‘Grumpy Cat’ Has Been Passed Down To This Prune-Faced Persian

The passing of Tardar Sauce, aka Grumpy Cat, on May 17, 2019, left an unhappy hole in the cat-o-sphere. The world may never again know a cat like her.

Louis comes pretty close, though.

The 6-year-old Version from Austin, Texas, is growing a following that may one day rival that of his glowering predecessor. At the end of her life, Tardar Sauce had amassed millions of followers on social media. Louis has just a few thousand, but his fan base is growing daily.
