Sometimes it’s so easy to send the Internet into a frenzy – just tell everyone that, say, Grumpy Cat earned $100 million and see what happens.
It is natural that people find it difficult to believe that a cat that seems to frown all the time can be worth that much money, and for many people it also seem unfair.
On the other hand, Tardar Sauce, which is actually Grumpy Cat’s real name, really was quite busy – her face can be seen on everything, from t-shirts to mugs, and she even starred in a movie and has her own book.
Still, Grumpy Cat’s owner, Tabatha Bundesen, who quit her job as a waitress in Arizona since her cat reached stardom, says that the actual sum the cat earned is way lower than $100 million, but didn’t want to specify how much.
Grumpy Cat, one of the most beloved memes, is two years old and owes her curmudgeonly looks to dwarfism and a dental overbite.
