SXSW Interactive’s biggest star, Grumpy Cat, in Austin

"We’ll have a proper video up soon, but here’s a photo and Vine video of Tardar Sauce, aka Grumpy Cat, perhaps the biggest star of SXSW Interactive 2013, at least based on Internet reaction to anything we post about her.

She was very sweet and did not seem to mind a room full of people giving her lots of attention. In fact, she was a little bit sleepy and we tried not to disturb her too much. Yes, I did get to hold her. (She’s very small and soft). Her owners seem very kind and responsible and they’re limiting her public appearances to about an hour a day, so don’t stress out about her welfare; she seems like she’s doing just fine (and not at all grumpy)."
