After our beloved Grumpy Cat’s untimely passing at the young age of seven, there has been a frowny face-shaped hole in the heart of the entire internet. Several cats, and even a few dogs, have stepped up in an attempt to recreate some of the grouchy magic Grumpy Cat so regularly graced us with, but so far, none have quite managed to capture her angry spirit.
But a new contender has entered the ring.
Kitzia is a perpetually perturbed little cat living her best life out in Florida with her person, Viktoriia Otdielnova.
With over 74,000 followers on Instagram, Kitzia has amassed quite the following since she slunk onto the scene back in 2018.
Her natural scowl and propensity to look shocked on top of that unrelenting dissatisfaction have made her a source of joy to the cat lovers of Instagram.
While it’s true that no fluffball will ever replace Grumpy Cat in our lives, having Kitzia around comes closer than most.
And some have even called Kitzia the even grumpier version of Grumpy Cat.
But much like Grumpy, Viktoriia says Kitzia is actually a lovely, friendly kitty despite how mad she always looks.
…well, as friendly as cats can ever be, at least.
We’ll always love the OG Grumpy Cat, but Kitzia is quickly earning a special place in our hearts as well! But it’s impossible to love too many cute critters — no matter how much time they spend scowling at us, they’re still all perfect.
