Sorry, guys, but Grumpy Cat doesn’t actually have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. An image of the infamous internet cat posing with a walk of fame star went viral this week and actually had people believing the cat was awarded the honor.
But it was all a big hoax. While Tardar Sauce really did hang out on the walk of fame while she was in Hollywood last week, the famous kitty hasn’t joined the likes of Lassie and Rin Tin Tin. Yet. That didn’t stop her fans from retweeting and congratulating her for the apparent accomplishment after someone posted the photo to her Twitter account this week.

According to TooFab, most of the photo is real — except for the name and symbol. Grumpy Cat was actually posing next to Ellen DeGeneres’ star and everyone who believed the hoax was the victim of a pretty decent photoshop job.
A rep for the Hollywood Walk of Fame did explain to the site that Tardar Sauce could qualify one day. The rep stated, “We have the categories of television, motion pictures and others that someday she may qualify in, if she gets some Hollywood gigs. Maybe she will get her claws into some juicy roles like Walk of Famers Lassie, Rin Tin Tin and Strongheart did back in the day. Dogs 3, Cats 0. Time will tell.”
But, hey, the famous feline is in the early stages of pre-production for a movie about her, so don’t count out the cats yet!
