Grumpy Cat Just Made $700,000 & We Can't Even Afford Smashed Avo On Toast
Another day, another real life meme laughing straight to the bank.
Grumpy Cat was just awarded more than $700,000 in a copyright lawsuit, and we're shook.
Apparently, Grumpy Cat Ltd made a deal coffee company, Grenade, on a line of iced coffees called "Grumpy Cat Grumppucinos."

But when Grenade created a line of "Grumpy Cat Roasted Coffee" and Grumppuccino t-shirts which weren't part of the original deal, Grumpy Cat's owner took them to court.
We're still trying to wrap our heads around the fact that a) an angry looking cat can sell coffee and win lawsuits and b) Grumpy Cat is far more successful than we have ever/will ever be.
People actually bought a meme cat branded iced coffee called Grumppuccino https://t.co/g70VXL1oRt

Oh, and if you thought $700,00 was more than any cat would ever need, here's a fun fact: Grumpy Cat Ltd made somewhere between $1 million and $100 million in its first few years of existence.
