There is no doubt in the fact that Grumpy Cat is a very famous Internet star. The cat is widely known and her fame has surely reached the entire Internet. Now, it has been revealed that this fame has brought the owner of the cat no less than $100 million.
The owner of famous Grumpy Cat, Tabatha Bundsese, has made around $100 million from the feline, who travels the world and makes guest appearances at many events. Now, Grumpy also has a movie and more project might be coming soon for the grumpiest cat in the world.
The first photo of Grumpy Cat was shared by Tabatha’s brother and it became an Internet hit. The picture shared in 2012 went viral and Grumpy Cat started to have millions of fans. Soon after, Tabatha was able to quit her job as a waitress and focus only on her cat, full time. The owner of the famous cat said that she always knew that her cat was special, but she had no idea how special she really was.
“We knew she was extremely unique, but we didn’t know she would be this magnitude of special,” she revealed. “I’m used to working everyday, so this is a huge routine change […] You don’t have to have a routine when you have to take pictures of the cat.” Tabatha also went on to reveal that thanks to her cat, she has the ability to travel more often and visit her family.
“It’s really awesome. It’s really awesome that Grumpy Cat can spread to joy to so many people — and she’s a cat,” she revealed. However, many people seem to believe that while Tabatha is very happy to have made a fortune from her cat, we cannot say the same thing about the small kitten. Grumpy Cat looks quite sad, as she has to throw parties, film or attend events, instead of sleeping, running in the grass or chasing bugs, as all cats do.
Some even went to say that Tabatha should let the poor cat do what all cats love to do, without the public attention.
