Unimpressed Animal Sweaters

This Grumpy Cat Sweater from 1991inc is the Curmudgeon Even

— January 19, 2014 — Pop Culture
This digital Grumpy Cat sweater is as adorable as it is hilarious. Grumpy is a cat that not long ago became quite famous on the Internet for having a perpetually long face. Her real name is Tardar Sauce, and her owner says that she is actually a very happy kitty, but her funny face is caused by feline dwarfism.

On this Grumpy Cat sweater is a digital print of a famous photo of Tardar. The garment is from label 1991inc. The picture is actually from a Time magazines piece on the frowning feline and shows her being held up high by a disembodied hand. It is digitally printed onto this sweet sweater. That cat looks visibly unimpressed while being held in front of a pink background.
