Grumpy Cat celebrates second birthday with new endorsement deals and a movie in the works

By Phyllis Stark. CREATED Apr 4, 2014

The Internet’s biggest feline star, Grumpy Cat, marked her second birthday on Friday (April 4) by touring New York City with her entourage in her new role as the official “spokescat” for Friskies Party Mix. The pet food brand will throw Grumpy Cat a birthday bash in the city April 29, her owner, Tabatha Bundesen, told CBS New York

Grumpy Cat, with her big blue eyes and perpetually pissed-off expression, goes by her real name, Tardar Sauce, at home. She “rose to fame after Tabatha’s brother posted a picture of the frowny feline on Reddit” in 2012 reports CBS New York. Despite appearances, her owners say she’s actually a very happy cat, despite having the condition feline dwarfism that makes her gait a bit wobbly.
 
So what’s next for Grumpy Cat, whose YouTube channel has more than 200,000 subscribers? The Associated Press reports she has “a movie project in the works to add to her pile of endorsements and licensing deals that include her scowling face on limited-edition bags of Friskies Party Mix treats and her own line of ‘Grumppuccino’ bottled coffee drinks.”
 
Fans can enter for a chance to attend the Friskies party by taking an Instagram of themselves with their own cat and wearing  their best grumpy face. The picture must be posted with the hashtag #1MMGrumpyFrowns before April 9.
