Mews and Nips: Grumpy Cat Embarks on Media Tour

 Grumpy Cat

The latest cat to have gone viral on the internet is Tardar Sauce the Grumpy Cat. Catsparella reports that after appearing on The Today Show last weekend, Tard embarked on a whirlwind tour of several New York City area media outlets to spread her trademark lack-of-cheer. Later in the week on Tumblr, Tard revealed the truth in a touching video narrated in a child’s voice: “I’m not grumpy. That’s just how my face is shaped.” Read the full story, and watch the video, on Catsparella.

Even though I felt a little sorry for beautiful Binga when I saw the photo above on her housemate Sparkle’s blog, she just looks so adorable, and seemed to be such a good sport about being dressed up as a tortie elf, I just had to share it with you.  The things some torties have to put up with! For the full story of how this photo came about, and more photos of Binga and Sparkle, visit Sparkle’s Diary.

When I first watched today’s video, I felt bad for the kitty – all that hard work! But then, I started to wonder whether maybe the dog had bribed or otherwise paid kitty to help him get the treat? What do you think?


Have a great weekend!

    We went onto Catsparella’s site then clicked on all the links to watch all the experiences Tardar Sauce had while in NYC. Whew! She sure was calm through it all!
