History has had its share of famous cats, but none more beloved and iconic than Grumpy Cat.

The cause was complications from a urinary tract infection, according to a statement from her official Twitter account.

They said she could not overcome complications from a recent urinary tract infection and died on Tuesday morning in the arms of her human mum Tabatha Bundesen. Grumpy Cat, the frown-faced Internet sensation, has made almost $100 million for its owner in just two years.

Grumpy Cat, whose pre-celebrity name was Tardar Sauce, burst to fame in 2012 when her owner's brother posted a picture of her mirthless mug on social media.

Grumpy Cat, whose sourpuss expression entertained millions on the internet and spawned thousands of memes, national television commercials and even a movie, has died at age seven.

Grumpy Cat's fame extended well beyond the World Wide Web. "This cat has brought so much joy to mine and millions of other people's lives the last few years", Twitter user Grace wrote.

Grumpy Cat became known for her signature frown after her owner posted a photo of her on the social media platform Reddit in 2012.

The cat also made an appearance on Broadway, as well as starring in a film and "writing" four best-selling books.

The cat's famous scowl was the result of feline dwarfism, her family said, and though she was a mixed breed, her owners were unsure of the specific mix.

"May she enjoy the Rainbow Bridge".
