Internet celebrity Grumpy Cat just turned two, and to celebrate, the adorable fur ball had a “Super Terrible 2″ birthday bash hosted by Friskies Party Mix on Tuesday.

Grumpy Cat, whose real name is Tardar Sauce, did not feel like mingling with the crowd of fans sipping Grumptinis and boogieing to “Blurred Lines,” but she did oblige us with an interview from her VIP (or is it VIC?) lounge. Here’s what she had to say about turning two via her human translators Brian Bundesen, her uncle, and Ben Lashes, her agent (yes – she has an agent).

Metro: What message do you have for other cats now that you’re two years old?

My advice is to never start caring.

How do you stay looking so young?

Lots of pampering. My human slaves take good care of me.

What’s your favorite flavor of birthday cake?

Burnt.

What have you learned these past two years?

People will be suckers for anything.

How did you spend your birth month?

Spreading grumpiness and sleeping as much as possible. And enjoying Friskies Party Mix.

What’s the best birthday present you ever got?

The plane ticket home from New York City.

What was your worst birthday gift or experience ever?

A trip to New York. Everyone showing up to my party with smiles.

What’s your birthday wish this year?

For everyone to leave.
