Grumpy Cat Not Thrilled to Join Madame Tussauds

  • Friday August 28th 2015

Grumpy Cat

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 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 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.
