Tardar Sauce – A Dwarf Grumpy Cat That Made $100 Mil For Tabatha Bundesen
She was a waitress at first, but one cat with dwarfism would later radically change her life. This is the amazing story of Tabatha Bundesen and her friend, the cat Tardar Sauce.
what kind of cat is grumpy cat?
The animal was born to to normal parents, but it had a strange grumpy look because of dwarfism. Tabatha’s brother found this really funny and one day he decided to shoot (talking about a camera here) the cat and post the picture to the popular social site Reddit. The photo wade a boom there. Then, just in 48 hours, the pic got more than 45 million views on the image sharing site Imgur. And this was only the start of a chain reaction. Tabatha Bundesen realized that she had won a jackpot. She quit her job just after a few days and dedicated entirely to her animal superstar. Since then, Grumpy Cat has brought nearly $100 million in revenue from media activities. But this is not all at all. The cat has just become a movie star, too. It plays the major role in the film ‘Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever’. The movie was just released.
Today Grumpy Cat is one of the most popular animals in the world. It has its own manager, a website, its own movie and popularity that many humans just can dream of. But most of the time Tardar Saucelives a pretty normal cat life.
More about the grumpy cat breed
This form of dwarfism that makes cats look grumpy is a genetic condition. The animals that have it are smaller, with shorter legs and have an under bite. The Munchkin, even not the same, is the original breed of dwarf cats. The animals are smaller and have short legs, but they don’t have the grumpy look. This is why the real grumpy cat is not a breed, but just a genetic condition caused by mutation that can affect all breeds. This is why having a grumpy pet rises some ethical questions. This condition may be accompanied by serious health issues of the cat and in some forms of dwarfism (like The Munchkin). In a family of two of these cats, 25% of the new born kittens die, because they are homozygous for the munchkin gene which is a lethal condition. This is why it’s not really ethical developing such breeds.
I just need to say here, that Tadar Sauce was a naturally born dwarf to a normal cat family.
