The owners of the internet meme star struck a deal with a coffee chain to use Grumpy Cat's image on their "Grumppuccino" iced drink but they exceeded the agreement by using the image on other products so today a California federal court awarded Grumpy Cat $710,000.

Grumpy Cat was obviously delighted.

We discovered when it got really, really cold out that ours is actually a crack mouser. So she does actually do something to earn her keep when the opportunity presents.

Regardless if you like the cat or not, that owner deserves every cent. The company made money off the image and didn't adhere to the agreement, luckily for the owner they did have an agreement

Maybe Grumpy Cat has a very witty retort possibly involving the word off just for you for $9.95 excl p&p...

You can make a meme out of a picture: "I don't always bring home a live rat, but when I do, it's under your bed in the early hours of Sunday morning when you have to get up early for church".

Grumpy Cat is disabled, so making snarky comments about a disabled animal is ok now?
( not just her mouth, her hips are messed up)

Grumpy Cat is hilarious. Good on her owners for enforcing their contract!! But before anyone calls me racist I also like weird smiling dog and "You're a special kind of stupid" Malmute.
