This Waitress Bought A Cat, And Made $100 Million

Tabatha Bundesen, 29, is the owner of feline Internet sensation, Grumpy Cat. She lives in Arizona.

Grumpy Cat has a form of dwarfism and an underbite that yields a perpetual frown.

On September 22 2012, Bundesen’s brother changed her life. Bundesen was a waitress. Her brother took a photo of her peeved-looking cat and posted it to Reddit. The photo went viral and Grumpy Cat quickly became a meme, with recognition on sites like BuzzFeed and even CNBC.

The fame enabled Bundesen to quit her waitressing job. In two years, she has generated nearly $100 million from Grumpy Cat’s paid appearances, book deals and modeling career.
