The internet is going crazy over the cute, furry feline known as 'The Grumpy Cat.' 'Tardar Sauce' is an 11-month-old mixed breed cat who went viral on the internet after pictures of her were uploaded onto the social news website People began to notice the stern appearance of the cat and started attaching captions to the pictures. Her popularity has grown so large that earlier this week she traveled from Arizona to the annual SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas where fans from as far away as Australia lined up for blocks hoping to snap a quick photo of the feline. Her YouTube site now has 90,000 subscribers and one of the videos has been viewed 7.4 million times. Cat food maker Friskies has taken notice and now Tardar Sauce will star in a commercial for the food brand. Her misspelled name came to be when the daughter of her owner said her fur looked just like the tartar sauce her mother served at her job at Red Lobster. (Video Source: REUTERS)
