Grumpy Cat: Net Worth $100 Million
Tardar Sauce (born April 4, 2012), commonly known as Grumpy Cat, is an American internet celebrity cat. She is known for her permanently “grumpy” facial appearance, which is caused by an underbite and feline dwarfism. She came to prominence when a photograph of her was posted on September 22, 2012, on social news website Reddit by Bryan Bundesen, the brother of her owner Tabatha Bundesen. Lolcats and parodies created from the photograph by Reddit users went viral. She is the subject of a popular internet meme in which negative, cynical images are made from photographs of her.
Tabatha Bundesen was working as a server when her brother in September of 2012 posted a video of her now-famous feline, Grumpy Cat, to Reddit. The cat’s legendary scowl went viral in less than 48 hours. It’s estimated Grumpy Cat has since earned Bundensen roughly $100 million from appearances, modeling, book deals and ads. Budenesen disputed the number but hasn’t said if it’s too high — or too low.
