CAT FRIDAY: We love Pokey, Grumpy Cat's brother

Posted By on Fri, Apr 26, 2013 at 3:24 PM

Tardar Sauce, aka Tard, who's most widely known as Grumpy Cat, is now one of the most recognizable memes, cats and animal celebrities of all time. It's pretty awesome to think that here at Cat Friday, we were some of the earliest fans of this little cat who to date has more than 870,000 followers on her official Facebook (there are a few fakes out there, people, just warning you), and has actually made people who've met her in person cry with joy.

Behind Grumpy, though, is — who we feel — an equally cute and highly overlooked brother, Pokey. We've known about Pokey for quite some time because we're huge cat freaks, but it's about time Pokey got some recognition!

What's maybe the most ironic when it comes to Tard and Pokey is that Pokey is actually the grumpy one, his owners say, and his "grumpy" looking sister, is actually quite sweet and calm. 

Just look at those beautiful gold eyes! We really wish Pokey had more of a place in the limelight too, other than the occasional photos of him on Grumpy's page.
