SAD NEWS: @RealGrumpyCat has died at the age of 7 from complications from a urinary tract infection. She was known all over the word for her miserable-looking face and negative disposition. She truly was my spirit animal. #RIP @WTNH #GrumpyCat pic.twitter.com/IwI4GAnkog— Brian Spyros (@BrianSpyros) May 17, 2019
