Purrmanently Sad Cat breaking hearts all over the Internet

07/08/2014 1:28 PM

That hissing sound is Grumpy Cat getting annoyed that there’s a new feline grabbing the spotlight on the Internet. Meet Purrmanently Sad Cat.

When a Reddit user named Moonflower first posted photos of the sad-faced kitty over the weekend, you could almost hear the hearts breaking in cyberspace.

Awwwwwww. Look at that sad face.

“Is this the saddest cat you’ve ever seen?” says the headline on a story about the forlorn-faced feline in The Irish Mirror.

Over the last three days more than 370,000 people have viewed her pictures on Imgur.

Predicted one Reddit user: “That cat will end up getting everything it has ever wanted.”

The little kitty is just a few days old, born over the weekend to Moonflower’s cat. She doesn’t have a name yet so for now she’s just Purrmanently Sad Cat, or PSC for short.

“PSC is very healthy and well taken care of,” wrote Moonflower. “She lives the life of luxury, attacking my toes from under the bed, chewing on fingertips, following my dog around and picking on her siblings!”

Moonflower hasn’t named her yet and is open to ideas.

Already suggested: Nugget, Happy, Meowancholia, Bojangles and Tinker.

We’d go with Blue.
