Internet Sensation Grumpy Cat Not Happy To Be Named First Madame Tussauds Cat

ZX1A4072_Grumpy_Cat_Sitting_MT_Touring_2015_Madame Tussauds is delighted to announce that irreverent Internet sensation Grumpy Cat will be the first ever cat to be immortalized in the attraction’s history.

“This is truly an honor…” said a distinctly unimpressed Grumpy Cat. “I hate it.”

Grumpy Cat shot to stardom when her photo was posted on Reddit on September 22, 2012. To dispel suspicions that the image had been Photoshopped, she posted two videos to YouTube. The videos went viral, making her the darling of meme-loving macro-makers everywhere.

In step with Grumpy Cat’s digital celebrity, her figure will be an animatronic with five different movements. The animatronic will be unveiled at Madame Tussauds’ San Francisco location later this year in typically aloof fashion by Grumpy Cat herself. After a short stay at Madame Tussauds San Francisco, the animatronic will tour the remaining five Madame Tussauds attractions across the US.



A sitting video is available to watch on YouTube. For real-time updates on the upcoming unveiling, follow Madame Tussauds San Francisco on social media: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
