On May 14, the iconic Grumpy Cat took her last breath due to urinary tract infection. She was seven years old. The frowny-faced creature was destined to achieve all the stardom, thanks to her grumpy appearance that was caused due to feline dwarfism. Back in 2015, the internet was taken by storm when the Grumpy Cat bumped into Stan Lee at a convention on Halloween. Now, the internet is remembering the days these two icons met.
