    Sad. Grumpy Cat, the grouchy-faced furball that launched a thousand memes, has died.

    Grumpy Cat, arguably the internet's most popular cat and one of its first viral memes, has died aged 7.

    The furry sensation's family announced her death on Twitter on Friday.

    "We are unimaginably heartbroken to announce the loss of our beloved Grumpy Cat," Tabatha Bundesen, Grumpy Cat's owner, said. https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/17/celeb...cli/index.html

    Poor thing. Grumpy Cat, real name Tardar Sauce, died as a result of a urinary tract infection. She suffered from feline dwarfism which caused the under bite that gave her that grumpy looking face.

    Died, from a UTI? Wow, there's an owner who wasn't on the ball, UTI's are quite apparent, if you're seeing your cat every day.... cleaning the litter box, etc....

    UTIs is the most common cause of death in cats. I lost two to the disease.

    Cats are so inclined to hide illness. If you have more than one cat, determining whether or not the cat is urinating becomes difficult unless you watch them. Dry commercial pet foods are implicated in causing UTIs in cats. They simply don't get enough moisture in their diet and their urine becomes too concentrated and often too alkaline and cats are not big water drinkers. Dry pet food was invented for the convenience of humans, not for the best interests of pets.

    Cats with UTI's don't just urinate in the box, they go everywhere, because they're uncomfortable and, feel like they have to go constantly, they may look like they're straining, they may yowl from discomfort/pain, there may be blood present.

    With more than one cat, take both to the vet, if you aren't sure which it is but, it's pretty easy to know which one, if you pay attention to your cats/know their normal behaviors.
