Just in time to add some levity to your life, there’s a new, even grumpier cat in town. Kitzia, a frowny-faced feline influencer, is quickly amassing a social media following, with over 94,000 followers on Instagram. Blessed with the face of a permanent sourpuss, Kitzia (Ukrainian for “Kitty”) can be seen scowling over a bowl of food, sending death stares through the camera, and playfully rejecting affection.
The grouchy looking cat lives in Florida with her companion Viktoriia Otdielnova, a professional photographer who has put her skills to great use documenting Kitzia’s every pout and glare for the benefit of us all. According to Viktoriia, though Kitzia may look grumpy, she’s really a sweet cat with an affectionate personality. Her Instagram account is filled with likes and memes of the frowning cat to entertain and delight even nominal cat fans.
Kitzia continues the legacy of the original Grumpy Cat who passed away in May of 2019 of urinary tract infection complications. Grumpy Cat, whose real name was Tardar Sauce, was the infamous celebrity cat who inspired books, licensed merchandise, and countless media appearances celebrating her trademark scowl. Perhaps Kitzia is next in line for the throne. Follow Kitzia on Instagram at @grumpy_kitzia.
