Grumpy Cat Brings a Thousand Fans to Changing Hands in Tempe
Photos by Benjamin Leatherman The Valley's Tardar Sauce (a.k.a. Grumpy Cat) at Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe on Sunday. See more photos of her appearance via our slideshow.
People came sporting Grumpy Cat T-shirts, clutching hand-drawn pictures of the local kitty, and ready to do their impression of the cat's famous scowl. They stood in line patiently for their 30 seconds of interaction with Tardar Sauce and her owner Tabatha Bundesen.

Some folks, like Phoenix's Amie Peterman, even showed off the Grumpy Cat tattoo she has on her right arm.

"Grumpy Cat is my spirit animal, which I'm sure a lot of people have said today," Peterman says.
