Dear 100 Hour Board,

I love me some Grumpy Cat (aka Tardar Sauce)! But, what is wrong with her? I heard she has some kind of disease or is sick or has a few too many chromosomes. Why is her mouth the way it is?

Dear Not Gone Unnoticed,

I read various articles about her (more than just these two, but these were the only two with Board-appropriate language), and the owners never say anything about her having a disease. The closest thing is a quote by some reader of an animal website, who insists that Tard has genetic defects due to inbreeding. While the owners do say she has an underbite and coordination problems, I don't think they've ever formally diagnosed her with anything.

Page 125 of the December 30, 2013 issue of People magazine says that Grumpy Cat has a "permanently grumpy face caused by feline dwarfism".
