    Grumpy Cat makes owner a mutimillionaire

    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 Sept. 22, 2012, Bundesen's brother changed her life.
    Bundesen was working as 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 CNBC. It earned more than 1 million views on Imgur within 48 hours.

    Good for her! I imagine no one else would adopt this cat, but she did and karma paid her back.

    He reminds me of "Gizmo" from Gremlins.

    I didn't know Grumpycat's face was a birth defect. Thought it was a breed of some kind. So I guess that means there's only one of her? That helps.

    You are incorrect...I would have adopted Tardar Sauce in a heartbeat (but would have given her a better name). I seem to have all sorts of misfit cats land on my doorstep.

    She's adorable! She does have problems like limited mobility, but wouldn't be the first.

    Wow, she's rich! I wonder who had to become poor?...I wonder whose slice of "cake" had to become smaller for that to happen?

    No wonder it makes no sense.

    I thought it might puzzle the Gruberites. Hence the clarifying disclaimer. which, as we see, still didn't make a dent.
