Watch out, Grumpy Cat! These are the newly famous felines ready to steal your spotlight
September 15, 2013
The next time someone calls Grumpy Cat (whose real name is Tardar Sauce) an Internet sensation, a phenomenon, a celebrity, don’t you dare laugh: She’s a big enough star to fill up 10,000 stadium seats at the recently-concluded second annual Internet Cat Video Festival held during the Minnesota State Fair in Falcon Heights, where she beat last year’s winner – Henri Le Chat Noir – for the much coveted Golden Kitty Award.
Although other nominees had a serious fighting chance to be the Web’s favorite kitty this year, Grumpy Cat was the runaway winner with over 20,000 votes. As she should – after all, she’s got her own manager, her own coffee drink brand, and a movie deal in the works.
But perhaps some new felines are about to give Grumps a run for her money. These are the latest Internet-beloved cats that are getting a shot at the limelight. We dare you not to get a case of the happy-sads going through this list.
