“Animals, who clearly don’t need any more attention than they already have (thanks internet), have been slowly racking up the pennies behind our naïve backs all this time.” reported Certain animals are more rich than the average human.

The richest animal in the world is a german shepard, Gunther who is worth $145,000,000. He inherited his fortune when his father passed away. Karlotta Liebenstien had given Gunther’s father the money in her will.  One of Gunther’s biggest purchases was Madonna’s old house in Miami according to

Many people have threatened to kidnap Trouble and his security guard was fired, according to Trouble passed away last year.

Unlike many of the other pets, Grumpy Cat earned his $100,000,000 on his own. His real name is Tardar Sauce, but because he always appears to be frowning, his stage name became Grumpy Cat. Grumpy Cat is mostly a model but he has starred in his own christmas movie too, according to .
