Tardar Sauce, better known as Grumpy Cat, made about $100 million since her rise to fame in 2012. She was famous for her constant grumpy expression, which landed her a meme, two books, and a movie on Lifetime. If all that can't put a smile on her face, nothing can. Unfortunately, Grumpy Cat passed away in May 2019. She was seven years old.
She’s the adorable, incredibly spoiled cat of the wildly successful poker champion, Dan Bilzerian. She has her own walk-in closet and rides in private jets, but she pulls her own weight with her customized Smushball Fancy Box that you can order online for your own cat to enjoy.

This derpy, lovably weird-looking feline is one of the most popular cats on Instagram (if not the world). Lil Bub often makes special appearances in "promposals" and has her own merchandise line. Lil Bub also starred in a film, Lil Bub & Friendz, that took one of the top awards at the Tribeca Film Festival.
According to Vanity Fair, Lil Bub has raised more than $300,000 for Lil Bub's Big Fund, which goes to special-needs animals.
Not only is she Lil Bub’s best friend, but Pudge is also pretty famous all on her own! She was one of the VIPs featured at CatCon LA where fans could meet her and purchase a poster with her face on it. Pudge has become so Internet famous that her owner, Kady Lone, quit her job as a graphic designer to manage Pudge's purrsonal affairs full-time.
