The Direct Marketing News staff pays homage to the grumpiest cat around. She also happens to be on the cover of our July issue. Our challenge to you: Take a photo of yourself looking grumpy and tweet us @dmnews or send your pic to allison.schiff@dmnews.com. If it's grumpy enough (a panel of in-house grumpiness experts will be convened to weigh in), we'll add your photo to the slideshow.
