Grumpy Cat's Appearance at Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe, 9/22/13

Grumpy Cat, the most famous feline in the Valley -- if not the entire Internet, made its first-ever public appearance on Sunday, September 22, at Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe and more than a few fans were there for the occasion.

An employee at the store estimated that more than a thousand people waited in line for several hours for the chance to get their photograph with the local Internet sensation. People came sporting Grumpy Cat t-shirts, clutching hand-drawn pictures of the local kitty, or just stood in line patiently for their 30 seconds of interaction with Tardar Sauce and her owner Tabatha Bundesen, or to just do their impression of her famous scowl.
