Meet 'Pompous Albert' The Newest Feline Internet Star: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Move over Grumpy Cat - the latest sourpuss to become an internet sensation is scowling feline Pompous Albert.


The grey cat with tufty hair and a permanent frown, from Salt Lake City, has already racked up a remarkable 44.1K followers on Instagram.

Albert, who`s a Selkirk Rex cat, was also named after his famous lookalike - Albert Einstein, thanks to his wild locks, which are a trademark of his breed."

I`m really developing an inferiority complex, it took me years to get over 3 thousand followers on Twitter, but these Internet cats get millions of followers on social media sites in a New York minute.

My friends are always begging me to set up a Facebook page for my adorable 25-pound cat Tico, but I don`t think my ego could survive Tico surpassing my number of Facebook friends in a matter of days.

Meet Pompous Albert the latest Internet sensation, who already has more Instagram followers that you will garner in your entire life.
