Over the years fans have posted so many memes to count, but they always had the same, goofy thread – that Grumpy Cat disliked everything in the sweetest, most satirical way.

The memes were always in good fun.
Everyone can agree that she was a part of a loving family and we wish them all the best in dealing with this substantial loss. Animals are absolutely family.
