Before dying at age 7 in May 2019, she lived with her owner, Tabatha Bundesen, in Morristown, Arizona. She made multiple TV appearances, including a 2013 documentary called “Lil Bub & Friendz,” and in 2014 she had her own TV film called “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever,” according to Guinness World Records.

The siamese/tabby mix was adopted by her owner, Varisiri Methachittiphan, from a shelter. She’s often donned in cute headgear and loves curling up in cardboard boxes, according to the Guinness World Records website.

And then there’s “A Very Angry Cat,” which was uploaded to YouTube on Oct. 6, 2006 and was viewed 88,810,910 times as of Oct. 18, 2016, which made it the most-watched YouTube video featuring a cat (excluding compilations).
