No one could ever replace Grumpy Cat in our hearts, but the folks at Bored Panda got the scoop of the decade with their expose on her spiritual successor.

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you about OG Grumpy – whose real name was Tardar Sauce – the angry-looking kitty who took the internet by storm when her pictures were posted to Reddit back in 2012. Fun fact; she actually shared a manager with Keyboard Cat, and actually starred in a Lifetime movie where she was voiced by Aubrey Plaza.

Tardar Sauce unfortunately passed away in 2019, but her memes will be with us always. And they may have company from some very grumpy pics of Meow Meow, a Taiwanese cat who was introduced to the internet by her human Clare.

If your first thought is “Reincarnation???” you should probably note that, according to Clare, Meow Meow may well actually be older than the late great Grumpy Cat.

Just when I thought I understood how cat souls work…

Clare attributes Meow Meow’s angry aura to the “Batman”-like mask of dark fur around her eyes, and the internet seems to agree.

Like Tardar before her, Meow Meow is actually very sweet in person.

Her hobbies include bird-watching and massaging her human awake every morning.

She is sincerely grumpy about at least one thing, though: food. She hates pretty much all of it that doesn’t come from one specific can.

“She’s tried nearly everything but she only likes that one,” Clara said.

Facebook has been quick to offer their hot takes on this newcomer’s place in the meme-iverse.
