The Internet’s favorite sourpuss, Grumpy Cat, unveiled Macy’s holiday windows in Union Square on Friday night.

For nearly a decade, the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has teamed up with the department store to find homes for animals and to raise money for the nonprofit.

Grumpy Cat wore the only scowl as fans lined up to get a selfie with this famous feline.

Karen Pennington, a self-described Grumpy Cat groupie, took the day off from her job in Livermore just to see the cat. Pennington said she expects to feel “lots of warmth and love.”

Last year’s event raised more than $100,000 for the SPCA, and helped 343 pets find new families.

SF SPCA Co-President Jennifer Scarlett hopes that the celebrity appeal of Grumpy Cat will encourage people to adopt  more than 350 pets this year.
