ST. LOUIS (AP) - It probably won't affect her sour mood, but Grumpy Cat now has an endorsement deal.

Nestle Purina PetCare said Tuesday that the frown-faced Internet sensation - real name Tardar Sauce - is now the "spokescat" for a Friskies brand of cat food. The St. Louis-based company didn't release terms of the deal.

Grumpy Cat, whose brown and white face wears a constant scowl, has become an online sensation.

Her photos are a constant presence on Facebook and other social media, and she's among the biggest stars of the peculiar trend of cat dominance on Web videos and postings.

Grumpy Cat's own Facebook page has 1.3 million likes. The dour animal also has more than 111,000 Twitter followers.

Nestle Purina featured Grumpy Cat in an online video game series in March.

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A former St. Louis mayor is accused of mishandling clients' funds through his law firm.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Freeman Bosley Jr. is facing disciplinary action from the Missouri Supreme Court.

A complaint was filed with the Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel in June but just made public. The counsel investigates allegations of misconduct by lawyers.

Bosley was St. Louis' first black mayor, elected in 1993. He lost a 1997 re-election bid and went into private law practice.

Bosley's attorney, Michael Downey, says the allegations involve money-management issues related to the trust account of Bosley's firm. He says Bosley accepts responsibility for the mistakes, but says none of Bosley's clients were deprived of any money due to them.
