Grumpy Cat breed: Snowshoe Siamese
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Grumpy!
What kind of cat is Grumpy Cat?
I'm glad you asked.
Let's start with a photo of Tard with her brother Pokey:
They are Snowshoe Siamese; see the Snowshoe Wikipedia page for more.
Tard and Pokey live in Arizona. Inquisitr adds:
Tardar Sauce, or “Tard” for short, isn’t angry at the world.
According to News.com.au, this seemingly grumpy cat is actually a very happy and loving kitten. “Tardar has what looks kind of like an under bite. She looked unique, as did her brother, at birth, with a flat face, bubble eyes, and a short tail,” owner Tabatha Bundesen explained.
However, the grumpy cat’s owner did admit there might be other reasons the feline is a little testy. “Tardar is not as coordinated as a normal cat, so she is likely a little angry about that. I think she likes to be held and petted some times, but being the pet of a 10 year old could make anyone grumpy,” Bundesen admitted.
What kind of cat is Tardar Sauce, you ask? According to a helpful reader at Paw Nation, the grumpy cat is a Snowshoe Siamese. “Unfortunately, this one has some very bad genetic defects,” the visitor wrote. “The likely cause is inbreeding due to the small gene pool available for breeders. Do a Google search for this breed to see what they are supposed to look like. They are actually a stunningly beautiful cat. This one, of course, has his own kind of beauty!”
So there you have it. Now, enjoy this Tard the Grumpy Cat video:
