I'm not Subby, but I didn't know that either.

I'm also surprised this is going  beyond a few still photos.

What's got into that cat?

I'm not going to fault an Internet meme making it's money while it's still relevant. As popular as grumpy cat is, there's no guarantee how long it will last.
 
2013-03-08 07:52:28 AM  
Doesn't seem like she's make a very good PR person.

They'll probably have her take a bite and CGI her into smiley cat.

Ugh.

I'm surprised it's taken this long for grumpy cat to get picked up by a cat food company, and I see they're carefully navigating the other question I had - how to market a cat named Tard (and I know it's short for Tardar Sauce, but still).

Also with all the media events she's had, she has to be the most placid cat in existence.

/I love Tard.

Most likely, but i'll take grumpy cat over that smug asshole Morris any day of the week

Ya hear that Morris? fark you!

Well, Maru appeared in a couple of Fresh Step commercials, so this really isn't the first time a famous internet cat has sold out.

why do you know this?
 
2013-03-08 08:28:31 AM  
It's great that this cat has found fame and will not ever want for food or attention, etc.

What's not great about it is that you KNOW there is some fool out there who is seriously considering getting a cat and putting it on a regimen of Bailey's Irish Cream and Botox so they can get a slice of Grumpy's pie.

I sure I hope I'm wrong, but every Farker has seen what people will do to their own children to put them in the spotlight. I can only imagine it would be even easier to try and church up your pet.

I think the cat's original name was Tard. The owners "changed" it to Tardar sauce when it started to go viral. Either way it is clear what they were going for, since the sauce is Tartar not Tardar...

What's up with all the Morris bashing? Morris rules. Morris was being grumpy before Tard's great grandma ever frowned at a mouse. Morris is the O.G.C., and you better give him the respect he deserves. Morris forever, Tard never!!!

...or something like that. I'm not quite used to white knighting for dead spokescats.

So the owners sold out.  Big deal.  If that is your definition, then they sold out long ago by posting the cat pictures, videos, etc on Youtube.  Each hit on their site generated revenue for not only Youtube, but for them also.  Same with Maru's owners.  Also, besides the videos and pictures, they were also marketing Grumpy cat T-shirts, mugs, etc.

It's only selling out if you claim to only be about the art and screw the man and THEN take the money.  I don't think it's possible for a cat to do that.

Tard's brother is named Pokey, and both cats are apparently "special", so yeah, I think her name was always just Tard.

As opposed to all those working-class felines that drive themselves to the vet, or take the bus.

Actually, no, I'm pretty sure that's the exact same meaning.


But, pun on rich people called "aristocrats", referencing cats!  Or the Disney movie.
