It probably won't affect her famous mood, but Grumpy Cat now has an endorsement deal.

The frown-faced Internet sensation, real name Tardar Sauce, is now the "spokescat" for a Friskies brand of cat food. Terms of the deal were not released.

Photos of Grumpy Cat have become a constant presence on Facebook and other social media. Her brown and white face in a constant scowl is often accompanied by crabby messages. Typical messages are "I don't like days that end in Y" or "I'm listening, I just don't care."

She also is among the biggest stars of the peculiar trend of cat dominance on Web videos and postings.

Grumpy Cat's own Facebook page has more than 1.3 million likes. The dour animal also has more than 111,000 Twitter followers.

Nestle Purina featured Grumpy Cat in an online video game series in March. The 1 1/2-year-old mixed-breed feline also has a merchandise line and reportedly has a movie deal in the works.

"She's very busy," Friskies spokeswoman Julie Catron said. "The first thing she'll do for us is receive the lifetime achievement award."

Catron isn't kidding. The feline will receive the award Oct. 15 in New York as Friskies honors the best cat videos of the year.

Grumpy Cat is owned by Tabatha Bundesen, who lives in Phoenix.

Critical thinking challenge: How will a grumpy-looking cat help Friskies sell more cat food?

He is so awsome wish I had a cat like him he is so cool I want him so much can I have him................................... He is a good "spokescat"

Because they want to use the cat for business and entertainment instead of just having her as a pet. They think that her face can be used to advertise products and get more business.

Well a lot of people like Grumpy Cat and I think it will help Friskies sell more cat food because of how popular grumpy cat is! Friskies should make a commercial with grumpy cat ... like I don't know ... maybe grumpy at is grumpy until he has Friskies!

Based on what happened, I predict that the grumpy cat will get more famous.Also I think the grumpy cat will do more things for different company's. The grumpy cat might go to different countries. The grumpy cat will help sell Friskies more cat food people will buy it for there cats because they might think grumpy cat likes it. That is what I think will happen to grumpy cat.

The grumpy cat will be a internet sensation and will be a tv sensation and may become more famous than lady gaga and her meat costume

Tardar Sauce isn't grumpy, she just has a under bite and she's also because feline dwarfism. She is a normal nice cat, that is just popular for her face,nothing else. She started by a video on YouTube video and got a lot of likes.

They could use this cat by say that he is sad because his mom feeds him Blue cat food instead of Fiskies. then it could say the only thing that makes the grumpy-looking cat smile is Friskies.

This story is about how a cat that has gone global because he can’t smile. People are making T.V shows and video games. This story is news because that is the beginning of grumpy cat. Now grumpy cat is so famous. The parents of grumpy have gotten so much money. Also grumpy cat has gotten an award! I think this is so cool. You know what is funny? I go online and look up grumpy cat. I see all of these hilarious photos. Sometimes I even cry it is so funny. Grumpy cat is “2”. He just celebrated his birthday. I hope cats live long because I want this one to live forever. I am sure if grumpy cat died there would be a lot of sad people. One of those people would be me.

Now it is a growing business on the fact that the cat looks mean. I like the fact that the cat is really very lovable and not "grumpy".

This grumpy cat is so cute it should a world wide thing. ts so grumpy it funny! It can help out on a lot of food stuff for cats and etc.
