Is Grumpy Cat earning more money than Lady Gaga these days? The movie and product-endorsing feline that started as an Internet sensation has reportedly earned her owner nearly $100 million in two years, beating the earnings of some notable Hollywood A-listers.

Tabatha Bundesen, the owner of Grumpy Cat, told the British Express that her pet is "unstoppable."

"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," Bundesen, of Morristown, Arizona, told the Express.

Tardar Sauce is the cat's real name and she was born on April 4, 2012, her owner says on grumpycats.com. She became an Internet hit after her photo was posted on Reddit on Sept. 22, 2012, followed by YouTube videos. Bundesen and her agent did not respond to a request for comment from ABC News confirming Grumpy Cat's earnings.

Among the trademarked Grumpy Cat products are a best-selling book, Grumppuccino iced coffee and the Lifetime movie "Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever."

In May 2013, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Bundesens have earned a low-six-figure sum off the cat at that point, which excludes the movie deal.

The Washington Post estimated this past June that Grumpy Cat’s annual potential earnings just from YouTube range from $5,100 to $42,400 a year.
