If you thought the biggest celebrity draws at the Austin mega-conference were the likes of Ryan Gosling or Al Gore, check out these insanely long lineups populated by people looking to have an audience with Grumpy Cat at SXSW.

With its unabashedly grumpy appearance, no-nonsense attitude and generally unimpressed expression, Grumpy Cat has become one of the most famous cats in the world. The no-nonsense feline was on hand at SXSW to promote Friskies Tasty Treasures, specifically its bacon-flavored cat food products. In addition to promoting the product, Grumpy Cat also wanted attendees to know that she supported Friskies Tasty Treasures' drive to donate 50,000 meals to shelter-dwelling cats.

While many people flock to Austin every year to check out the panels, launches and interactive events, many head there just to catch a glimpse of Grumpy Cat at SXSW.
