Grumpy Cat's Christmas has come early after making £64million for her owners.

But is she smiling? What do you think!

The world's most miserable moggy is worth more than Hollywood stars Nicole Kidman, Cameron Diaz, Matt Damon and Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey since shooting to fame two years ago in a YouTube video that got more than 16.5 million million views.

Grumpy's owner, 28-year-old Tabatha Bundesen from Morristown, Arizona, said: "She's unstoppable. What she's achieved in such a short time is unimaginable and absolutely mind-blowing.

"I was able to quit my job as a waitress within days of her first appearance on social media and the phone simply hasn't stopped ringing since."

Grumpy - whose real name is Tardar Sauce - has a permanent scowl caused by her being born with dwarfism and an underbite.

She became an Internet superstar after Tabatha's brother posted a picture online. Her fame spread rapidly especially once she was taken up by Ben Lashes – an 'Internet cat ' agent.

The frown has proved irresistible on social media with 521,000 followers on Instagram and 255,000 on Twitter. She also appears in adverts, on gift items, and has a best-selling book in 15 languages.

There has also been a line of products including a brand of iced coffee, called Grumppuccino.

Last year the curmudgeonly cat appeared on the front pages of The Wall Street Journal and New York Magazine.

Grumpy's big screen debut is coming soon with the film 'Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever'. It has been billed as a cross between Home Alone and Die Hard.
