20 Word’s Richest Pets of All Time


20,American Pharoah: Net Worth $4.53 Million


The first Triple Crown winner since 1978, American Pharoah earned $1.24 million for his win at the Kentucky Derby, $900,000 for his victory at the Preakness and $800,000 for winning the Belmont Stakes. His overall 2015 winnings totaled $3.37 million. Over his career so far, he has earned $4.53 million. The probability of landing lucrative corporate endorsements could push that number much higher.


19. Terry the Dog: Earned $125 ($2,200) per Week


Although the terrier was seen in more than a dozen movies, Terry is best known for her (yes, her) her role as Toto in “The Wizard of Oz” — arguably the most famous pooch in Hollywood history. Terry’s salary was more than most Americans earned at that time — including all of the actors who played the Munchkins.

尽管这只可爱的小猎犬出演了许多电影,Terry 最广为人知的角色还是她(没错,是她)在《绿野仙踪》中出演的Toto ——很可能是好莱坞历史上最著名的混血狗。特里的薪水比当时绝大部分美国人都高,甚至比出演同部电影的演员都高。

18. Hamilton the Hipster Cat: Earns $1,900 to $15,900 Annually


Hamilton is too cool for the room — and hipsters of the world can’t get enough of the ironic cat. Hamilton has more than 110,000 Facebook likes and 550,000 Instagram followers. The Washington Post estimated he could be making as much as $15,900 a year.


17. Peanut, the World’s Ugliest Dog: Won $1,500


Rescue mutt Peanut was lucky to survive the fire from intentional abuse that disfigured his face and body. But instead of feeling sorry themselves, Peanut and owner Holly Chandler entered — and won — the World’s Ugliest Dog Competition in 2014. Chandler decided to use the $1,500 prize money to help pay for other animals’ vet bills.

混血救援犬小花生在一场火灾中被烧毁了脸和身体。但他们并没有自哀自怨,小花生和主人Holly Chandler 参加并赢得了2014年世界最丑狗狗大赛。Chandler 决定用这1500美元奖金帮助支付其他动物的诊疗费。

16. Colonel Meow: Earns $5,000 Annually


Colonel Meow died when he was just 2 years old, but his YouTube videos still earn his owner $5,000 a year. The Himalayan-Persian mix got his big break in 2012 when his wild, unruly fur and crazed stare earned him Facebook and Instagram viral fame. In 2014, the colonel’s 9-inch locks landed him the Guinness world record for the cat with the longest fur.


15. Henri, le Chat Noir: Earns $1,000 a Week


Although Henri’s first video was released in 2007, it took five more years to make Henri famous. Film critic Roger Ebert called “Henri 2, Paw de Deux” “the best internet cat video ever made.” Henri’s owner pulls in around $1,000 a week from an online store.

尽管亨利的首部视频发布于2007年,但他五年后才出名,电影评论家Roger Ebert 把《Henri 2, Paw de Deux》称作“史上最棒的网络猫视频”,他的主人在一家网上商店上一周收入大概1000刀。

14. Keyboard Cat: Earned $21,100-$175,800 Annually


The original Keyboard Cat video was made public in 2007 — but his owner filmed it back in 1984. Keyboard Cat, whose video has been viewed nearly 71 million times, is likely the genesis of a common knock against YouTube as a place to see “cats playing pianos.” The Washington Post estimated that the cat, who died in the late 1990s, could now be worth up to $175,800.


13. Pudsey: Net Worth $1.57 Million


Television performance dog Pudsey gained international stardom after stealing the show on “Britain’s Got Talent” in 2012. Pudsey — and his lucky owner, Ashleigh Butler — so far earned around a million pounds, or $1,574,555, from his talents, including title star of a 2014 film.

电视演员帕西2012在《英国达人》的抢镜表现让他成了国际明星——而他幸运的主人,Ashleigh Butler——凭借狗狗的天赋已经赚了将近100万英镑,也就是1574555刀。包括在2014年主演一部电影。

12. Maru: Earns $180,000 Annually

Named after Patrick Swayze’s character in “Point Break,” Bodhi is better known by his alter-ego name: Menswear Dog. His fashionista owners have transformed the dog-in-human-clothes craze into mainstream success, to the tune of $15,000 a month. Bodhi has appeared in GQ, Esquire, Nylon, Time and more.

他的名字源于电影《惊爆点》中Patrick Swayze 扮演的角色,而他的另一个名字更加出名:男装犬模。他疯狂追求时髦的主人让犬穿人衣这种疯狂的点子在主流媒体上大获成功。Bodhi 已经在《GQ》、《时尚先生》、《尼龙》、《时代周刊》等媒体上多次露面。

10. Lil Bub: Earns $30,000 a Year


The amount of money that the adorable cat Lil Bub has earned for owner Mike Bridavsky has not been disclosed, but it’s enough that Bridavsky quit his day job years ago and has donated $200,000 to animal charities. Lil Bub earns $30,000 a year in YouTube royalties.


9. Bart the Bear: Net Worth $6 Million


More than just a pet, the giant grizzly earned $1 million for his role in his biggest movie, “The Edge,” but Bart has been seen in many other movies and television shows. Altogether, Bart has pulled in more than $6 million in wages.

7. Pal: Earned $4,000 ($51,000) a Week


Pal, a collie known to millions of television’s earliest fans as “Lassie,” died at the age of 18 in 1958 after starring as the first of many Lassies to come. During his run, Pal earned $4,000 a week. In today’s world, that would be a payday of $51,000 a week.

Pal 是一只柯利犬,对于数百万早期电视粉丝来说,他是“莱西(《灵犬莱西》)”,18岁的他死于1958年,也被视为后续诸多“莱西”扮演者的鼻祖。Pal 一周能挣4000刀,放在今天相当于51000刀。

Rin Tin Tin, a German shepherd found by a solider during World War I, starred in dozens of movies for Warner Brothers from 1922 to 1932, saving the studio from bankruptcy. The dog earned up to $2,000 a week, which would be a whopping $26,000 a week today when adjusted for inflation.


5. Tara the Hero Cat: Earns $55,600-$463,700 Annually

4. Crystal the Monkey: Earned $12,000 per Episode


Crystal raked in $12,000 per episode for “Animal Practice” — unfortunately the show only aired nine episodes. No matter.

3. Moose: Net Worth $3.2 Million
