Well I was completely wrong because it turns out that the Grumpy Cat Instagram account was worth a staggering $10 million so whoever owned him must have been one of the luckiest people alive. Holy moly that’s a lot of money for a silly looking cat.
We’re not here to lament over the ridiculous ways people are making money in the 2010s though, we’re here to talk about how Grumpy Cat has sadly passed away today way earlier than expected at the tender age of 7. The news came courtesy of the cat’s official Twitter account, which posted the following:
