Move Over Grumpy Cat; Sauerkraut Is Taking Over The Internet

OKLAHOMA CITY – Move over Grumpy Cat; Sauerkraut kitty is the next big thing.

"She's more sarcastic than grumpy," Sauerkraut's human mom, Amy Bender, said.

This local kitty has become the cat's meow on the Internet.

"She slowly got some followers and she had about 30,000 until someone did a Buzzfeed and that's when everything went crazy," Bender said.

"She's going to have whistle stop tours so her fans can see her. Our first stop will be Roswell because everybody says she looks like an alien," Bender said.

So what makes Sauerkraut look like such a sour puss?

"She also has some neurological disorder, which makes them non-reactive to situations like loud noises.

She doesn't care. She doesn't care about big dogs. She doesn't care," Bender said.

The viral sensation has humble beginnings at the Central Oklahoma Humane Society.

"When Sauerkraut came into our programs, Sauerkraut had some challenges, so we knew Amy was the perfect person to take Sauerkraut in," Abby Harris, at the Central OK Humane Society, said.

Amy Bender, Sauerkraut's mom, is nominated for the Purina Cat Chow Shelter Volunteer Contest.

If she wins, OK Humane will receive $25,000 for a shelter makeover to benefit cats and kittens.
