Американская мечта To most Internet users, Grumpy Cat - the feline with a furry frown - is a minor celebrity that capitalized on the popularity of memes in 2012 as a perpetual sourpuss. One of the most famous images of the cat, for example, was overlaid with the text, "I had fun once. It was awful." To her owner, Tabatha Bundesen of Morristown, Arizona, she was a cash cow and lifeline. The cat's unexpected fame allowed Bundesen to quit her job waitressing at Red Lobster, according to the Hollywood Reporter. She later formed Grumpy Cat Limited, monetizing the dour kitty. The company has produced a line of branded clothing, pillows, mugs, pens, bags and books "written" by the unhappy cat, including a New York Times bestseller. The cat herself - real name: Tardar Sauce - has appeared on "Today," "Good Morning America" and even "American Idol." She has starred in a commercial for Honey Nut Cheerios and became an official "spokescat" for Nestle's Friskies cat food in 2013, CNN Money reported. It's been reported that the company raked in anywhere from $1 million to $100 million in its first few years in existence.
