Grumpy Cat movie in the works

May 31, 2013 (LOS ANGELES)

Watch out Garfield. Grumpy Cat may be the next animated cat. Though her expression is anything but, her owners say she's a very sweet kitty.

Bryan Gundesen first posted a photo of Grumpy Cat, which belongs to his sister, online. Overnight, fans started adding captions.

Now, Grump Cat's frown is on coasters, clothing, birthday cards- and she has a book coming out. She's the 2013 Webby Award winner- meme of the year.

"A lot of people are grumpy until they've had their coffee." Gundesen said.

Grumpy Cat's real name is Tardar Sauce, based on a misspelling of the word by the owner's daughter. She thought the cat's fur looks the same color.
