Grumpy Cat Says No to Christmas!

The Grumpy Cat Christmas movie is currently filming in Coquitlam, BC, Canada until September 16th, and I had a chance to check out some of the sets.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. As I walked past, a lot of angry shoppers were mad that the Christmas decorations have been put up even earlier this year, especially in August. But wait....Can it be a Grumpy Cat movie, sponsored by Lifetime Channel? Yes, it's Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever! So, don't worry shoppers, all the Christmas decorations will be back down again, just in time for Halloween!
Someone to watch over me. Yes, they had crew, just in case anyone stole one of the faux presents from under the tree.
Just say NO! That's right. That's what the crew told me when I asked if I could have a look at the set.
But all is not lost, as I was allowed to visit Whiskers, the pet store in the film.
Here's customer service all decked out for Christmas.
Michelle at Customer Service gave me four cat buttons, so I guess my Christmas shopping is now done for the year.

The neat sign the crew made.

Some lovely stars on the side.

Another WTF Christmas tree in the Mall.

Some of the actors from the movie decided to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Take note of Grumpy Cat AKA Tardar Sauce, in the background there. 
Here is Grumpy Cat on her Santa throne, not looking very amused.

So, no, after my great voyage out to the boonies, I never did get to meet Grumpy Cat. When I talked to Michelle at Customer Service, she said the crew didn't give them any information. It was hit or miss whether you saw her at the Mall or not. She did make an appearance last Saturday, so it's possible another one is coming up on Saturday. Stay tuned for the Grumpy Cat movie on Lifetime Channel at Christmas time. Until then, say NO to Christmas in August.
