If Grumpy Cat could smile, we bet the world’s most famous cat would be grinning ear to ear if she knew her bank account! But, how much is the internationally beloved Internet meme actually making each year?
Despite a recent report that Grumpy Cat has earned $100 million dollars, her owner, Tabatha Bundesen, 29, is denying that this is her pet’s annual paycheck. So how much is the owner, a former waitress, making from the Internet’s favorite sour feline star?
Grumpy Cat: How Much Is The Internet Meme Worth?
Grumpy Cat should apparently cheer up because she has a “£64million fortune”, or roughy $100 million dollars, according to the The Daily Express.
But according to Tabitha, this breakdown of her feline’s finances is false!
Although Tabitha did not actually disclose the amount of money she has garnered as Grumpy Cat’s owner, she is “considering how and when to give a full interview to set the record straight,” according to The Huffington Post.
With a distinct underbite and perpetually grumpy face, Grumpy Cat has every reason to turn her frown upside down.
Her YouTube page now has more than 16 million views, and she has an endorsement deal with Friskies cat food. She also has “authored” two books, the first of which became a New York Times bestseller adds The Huffington Post.
Fans React To ‘Grumpy Cat‘s Worst Christmas Ever’
Another project that just contributed to the feline’s finances? Grumpy Cat‘s Worst Christmas Ever, which aired on Lifetime on Nov. 29.
In the holiday special, it’s the meow-velous mall adventure for Grumpy Cat, who lives unhappily in a mall pet store. It’s not long though before a 12-year-old girl becomes fond of her and is the only one who can hear her talk. They develop a bond and stop a pet kidnapping in the mall, all while discovering the true meaning of Christmas.
In reality, Grumpy Cat’s cozy and luxurious lifestyle is a far meow from her life in the movie’s mall!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is it crazy how much money this cat lady and Grumpy Cat make?!
