Only seven days until the world's grumpiest cat is headed to Las Vegas to debut her second book. The delightfully infamous Grumpy Cat comes to Sin City Aug. 5, for a book signing at 6 p.m. inside the world's largest Kitson store.
And now Kitson preps for her arrival a the boatload of new grumpy merchandise: calendars, notepads, plush likenesses, cat food bowls, phone cases and notecards.

Grumpy Cat's new book The Grumpy Guide to Life: Observations by Grumpy Cat ($12.95 US, $15.95 Canada, Chronicle Books) debuts that day. The petulant pussycat plans to "glower and pose with her fans for photos."
Her sassy new book is dubbed "the alternative to feel-good, positive thinking. Rather, Grumpy Cat brings the advice, maxims and observations that have made her the spirit animal for people everywhere."
Her majesty has whole sections on family, relationships, nature and even happiness.
For those interested in attending, books are available for pre-purchase online at shopkitson.com and will be at The Linq location for pick up. A wrist band is required for entry, beginning at noon the day of the event.
In the meantime, see what you can purchase to go along with Grumpy Cat's books.
