The cat known as 'Grumpy Cat' met her likeness at Madame Tussaud's wax museum in San Francisco on Tuesday.

Grumpy Cat is the first cat to be immortalized in the history of Madame Tussauds and her animatronic is the first mechanized figure to be created in almost a century.

Grumpy Cat shot to stardom when her photo was posted on Reddit on September 22, 2012.

To dispel suspicions that the image had been Photoshopped, she posted two videos to YouTube.

The videos went viral, making her the darling of meme-loving macro-makers everywhere.

In step with Grumpy Cat's digital celebrity, her figure is an animatronic with five different movements.

After a short stay at Madame Tussauds San Francisco, the animatronic will tour the remaining five Madame Tussauds attractions across the US.
