June 4, 2020 | 4:18pm
A new grumpy cat has taken over Instagram.
A cranky-looking Florida kitty is being touted as the second coming of “Grumpy Cat” due to her permanent scowl, which has skyrocketed the furry feline to Instagram stardom.
Kitzia — known as Grumpy Kitzia on social media — boasts more than 49,000 followers since her ‘Gram page was set up by her photographer-owner Viktoriia Otdielnova in 2018, reports Bored Panda. Viral photos and videos depict the grouchy kitty engaging in everything from birdwatching to eating while sporting her signature sourpuss.
In one hilarious recent clip, Kitzia can be seen looking particularly perturbed while her adoring owner scratches the top of her head. The vid is captioned: “When you are a kid and your relatives haven’t seen you for a while.”
Despite her crotchety countenance, feline Kitzia’s proud owner maintains that her pet boasts a sweet and lovely disposition in real life, reports Bored Panda.
Still, her trademark grimace has earned her oodles of compliments on social media.
“Absolutely love this cat,” exclaimed one fan on Instagram.
“If looks could kill…we’d all be goners!” said another of footage of Kitzia baring her resting bitch face while wearing ridiculous digital bunny ears.
Others compared her to Grumpy Cat, also known as Tardar Sauce, the original frowny-faced feline who shot to internet fame after surfacing in a Reddit thread in 2012. Since then, the cantankerous calico inspired various memes, had cameos in multiple food commercials and even starred in the 2014 movie “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever.”
Grumpy tragically died last year at the age of 7 from complications from a urinary tract infection, whereupon hordes of copycats have tried — unsuccessfully — to capture her crabby crown.
