Grumpy Cat was one of the first pet stars of Instagram. She actually became noticed when her owners brother posted a picture of her on Reddit but it is on Instagram that she really attracts followers, having more than 2 million at the last count. The internet may know her as Grumpy Cat but her real name is Tardar Sauce as she was the color of this sauce when she was born. The chances are that you have seen at least one meme online that features Grumpy Cat but there are a number of other facts about her that you may not know.
Her Grumpy Face Is Caused By A Medical Condition
She has feline dwarfism and an underbite which is what gives her the grumpy expression. The underbite does not cause her any discomfort and therefore there is no real reason to have it corrected. There are many other cats all over the world that suffer from this condition. However, the underbite is a lot more pronounced on Grumpy Cat than is usual and this is what makes her so unique. It also means that she has a permanently bad tempered expression as the shape of her mouth resembles a frown. She has regular check ups with the vet to monitor her health conditions and the work would stop immediately if there was any issue with her health.
