About

Princess Monster Truck is a female Persian cat who was born with a disformed lower jaw causing a severe underbite. She rose to internet fame in April 2013 after her owners Tracy Timmons and Joseph Bryce launched an Instagram account for her photos.

Origin

According to a Buzzfeed[1] interview, Princess Monster Truck was found by New York City-based artists Tracy Timmons and Joseph Bryce[2] on the streets of Brooklyn. They led the cat to their home, where they cleaned her up and decided to keep her as their pet. Timmins began posting photos of the cat to her personal Instagram account[3] (shown below, left) on December 12th, 2012. On April 9th, 2013, they launched a separate account[4] just for the cat. As of May 13th, 2013, Princess Monster Truck has more than 8,1000 Instagram followers.

On May 7th, 2013, Buzzfeed[1] posted a compilation of Princess Monster Truck’s photos to their animal site. In less than a week, the post was viewed more than 375,000 times with more than 67,000 Facebook likes. The same day, the photos from the Buzzfeed article were reposted to the Tumblr blog Pussykatzen[5], where they gained more than 9,100 notes within the same time frame. Over the course of the next three days, photos of Princess Monster Truck were featured on People Pets[6], Laughing Squid[7], Pleated Jeans[8], Uproxx[9], Buzz Patrol[10], AOL On[11] and Catster.[12] On May 9th, a photo of the cat was submitted to the /r/Pics subreddit[13] where it gained more than 300 upvotes and 240 points overall.
