"...Because the cat – again, yes, the actual, bona fide Grumpy Cat AKA Tardar Sauce – is in Austin this week to 1) star in some videos for Friskies, and 2) amplify her meme cred with a visit to SXSW Interactive...."
"...The grumpiest creature ever to flood the worldwide internets in meme form, the (actually sweet-natured) varmint owned by Bryan and Tabatha Bundesen will be in Austin for SXSW, to make with the celebrity glad-handing and be filmed as part of a series of commercial webisodes for cat-food purveyor Friskies...."
"...Look for the store to offer pet-friendly events and Yappy Hours for customers and their animals... Also this weekend, the folks from Friskies will be promoting the launch of Tasty Treasures, a new cheese-flavored cat food..."
"...This year, GC returns to celebrate/denigrate Friskies' Cat Concoctions line of mixed-up cat foods. Lamb in clam flavored sauce? Sounds terrible, but Bundesen says it's actually her cat's favorite flavor..."
"...Alamo Drafthouse CEO and founder Tim League will serve as a judge for the first-ever "The Friskies," where internet cat video awards meet inspired product placement (how very... frisky of them)..."

"...Austin's well-deserved reputation as an emerging food city doesn't just attract national media attention – major companies are adding River City events to their promotional tours as well. During South by Southwest, brands as diverse as CNN, Maker's Mark, and Friskies were in town promoting themselves..."
"......and last night's (this weekend's) weather reminds me of what I love about the colder climate: bundling up, hot chocolate, frozen ears, and of course there's the Winter version of the Spring "Friskies" - where all you wanna do is rub up on someone. Yow!..."
"...Lots of parties are happening, from office doings to Saturday night blasts at the clubs. It can all be great fun -- but what a time for falling off the meds wagon or engaging in the risky friskies...."
