Grumpy Cat has hundreds of thousands of followers on YouTube and Twitter, and more than 1.5 million followers on Instagram. Her fame brought her several endorsement deals, book deals, her own line of coffee, a movie, and tons of toys in her likeness.

Grumpy Cat, whose real name is Tardar Sauce, traveled to London Saturday for the UK debut of her wax twin who is the first animatronic figure the museum has made in more than 100 years! The man-made Grumpy Cat can make five different movements, including curling up in her bed, lifting her head and purring.

The animatronic Grumpy Cat was first unveiled in San Francisco in 2015 and will be on display at Madame Tussauds in London through August. At the debut, Grumpy posed for photos with adoring fans, and even with some of the other wax figures on display, including a wax Kim Kardashian.

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
