When there is so much about life that is bothersome and annoying, and such pressure to always be upbeat anyway, just a look at a Grumpy Cat meme is enough to relieve a little stress.
Thankfully, Grumpy Cat is not actually grumpy, she looks that way because she has a form of feline dwarfism. According to her owners, she’s actually a very happy cat.
