I wish Tard's owners would take a DNA sample and start having grumpy clones made. I'd buy one without hesitation.

Yes, heaven forbid she report on a meme, something that is actually a brand new area of study and of great interest to most young academics.

The time for studying memes is now. In the history of language and human culture, things have seldom progressed this quickly. Basically, lolcats are an important cultural meme. As much as you might not want to accept it, that's just the way it is. I know you might feel that, because the person studying it might be studying language, English, or history, that they might not deserve a mention, because their area of expertise isn't something practical like engineering. But they're the same people you wind up quoting to prove your point at some future academic (or even internet) discussion. So stop pitching a biatch.

Well, she's still working for Red Lobster as a waitress right now, so I guess the answer is "not enough".

Hopefully the girl is smart enough to use her (well, her cat's) 5 minutes of fame wisely, and invest all money earned in a way that will keep giving long after the tabloids have found a new shiny ball of string...

At that point you might as well have a pet rock. Or possibly a cactus. Although rocks are cuddlier. Guinea pigs are sweet, but my betta is more dynamic and interactive than I remember my brother's old guinea pig being. (Then again, that was just one cavy, and he may not have been the healthiest little guy.)

Grumpy Cat has feline dwarfism and according to the last thread she's expected to have medical problems related to the dwarfism. These appearances will enable her owners to give her the best medical care possible.

I don't know why you think that cat is suffering so much. Aside from the occasional stress of a publicity tour, which doesn't happen everyday, it seems to be living a lovely relaxed life, where all its needs for food, shelter, love and affection are met. In fact, its life is a lot better than mine.

Tardar Sauce is so awesome, she has her own YouTube channel and website. I hear she's also been licensed to Caturday and back and I know t-shirts are sold, and was mentioned upthread, this will help pay for Tardar Sauce and her brother Pokey to receive the best care possible. Cats with medical problems are expensive, as most of us in the Caturday threads can personally verify. Still cheaper than a human kid, though.
