Internet famous feline Grumpy Cat visits London

If there’s one thing the Internet goes wild for, it’s a feline. Cats of all ages, shapes and sizes drive the clicking community wild, and have inspired many a popular meme. However there’s one kitty that’s more famous than all the rest put together – the widely adored Grumpy Cat, she of the sour puss and gorgeous blue eyes.

Real name Tardar Sauce, her famous surly face is the result of a feline form of dwarfism and her owners assure everyone that she really is quite a happy cat.

And this week, the US-based puss visited the capital of England, London, for a whistle stop tour of all its most famous sights. British brand Primark brought the little critter over to promote their Grumpy Cat range of products, but the furry feline managed to take in a lot of the sights and sounds of the city during his time there.
