Grumpy Cat to get own waxwork

Friday August 28th 2015

The grumpiest - and perhaps most famous - cat in the world is to be made into a waxwork.

Grumpy Cat, whose real name is Tarder Sauce, found fame online thanks to her miserable facial expressions.

Now the cranky kitty will be immortalised at Madame Tussauds - an honour never bestowed upon a cat before.

The animatronic creation will be made by Madame Tussauds in San Francisco, where it will launch before touring five other Madame Tussauds attractions in the United States, reaching thousands of Grumpy Cat's fans.

But followers in Britain look set to miss out, as there are no plans to send the wax and fur creation across the Atlantic. That could change though, says Nicole Fenner of Madame Tussauds London, if demand is high.

Grumpy Cat shot to stardom when her photo was posted on Reddit in 2012. Since then, hundreds of photos and videos have gone viral. She has hundreds of thousands of followers on social media, not to mention her own line of merchandise.

Her animatronic waxwork will have five different movements, bringing her grumpy personality to life.
