Happy Birthday, Grumpy Cat! Tardar Sauce turns 2

Everyone’s favorite meme celebrates her second birthday on Friday, but she probably won’t have a smile on her face.

Grumpy Cat turns two, and you could win a trip to her New York City birthday bash by sending in your own version of the “Grumpy Cat” face.

Tardar Sauce is her real name, and she’s an Arizona native – her owners Tabatha and Bryan Bundesen are from Morristown, Ariz.

Grumpy Cat went viral in 2012 after her owners posted photos of her permanent frown to the website Reddit. Her owners say her famous facial feature is likely due to feline dwarfism. They also say she’s not as grumpy as she looks and is actually quite cuddly and warm. 

She’s also a social media sensation, with more than 4.7 million likes on Facebook and more than 192,000 followers on Twitter . And she’s active on YouTube, where she just did a video about replacing David Letterman on the Late Show. 

She’s racked up tons of endorsement deals, including a job as “official spokescat” for Friskies Party Mix, who will be throwing her birthday party on April 29 in NYC.

Here’s what you have to do to qualify: Take a photo of you and your cat making your best Grumpy Cat impression. Share the photo with the hashtag #1MMGrumpyFrowns on Instagram or on Friskies’ website .

All photos have to be uploaded by April 7 at noon Eastern Time to be considered. Friskies will choose one winner at random on April 9 for a two-night trip for two to New York for the birthday party. They’ll keep giving out other prizes, like plush toy versions of Grumpy Cat and cat food, leading up to the bash.
