Meet Pompous Albert, the Selkirk Rex feline known for his untamed grey fur and permanent scowl. Named after the famous physicist Albert Einstein due to his wild hair, this Salt Lake City cat has gained quite the following on Instagram with 44.1K followers. His owners regularly post pictures of him showcasing his unique and quirky personality. Move over Grumpy Cat, there’s a new sourpuss in town!
Albert hails all the way from Salt Lake City and never fails to amuse his impressive 44.1k Instagram fan base.
Albert, a cute feline with white-grey curly hair, was named after the famous physician Albert Einstein. His owners, Mike and Susan Singleton from Salt Lake City, USA, run his Instagram account, which features various pictures of Albert in different situations, often frowning and glaring at the camera with his disapproving feline brow. Despite being a rejected show cat, Albert’s bio boldly states, “I’ll show them.” With each photo, his owners add a sarcastic caption that gives the fluffy cat an aura of sinister humor. For instance, one image of him staring fiercely into the camera has the caption, “I’m not grumpy or angry, I’m just smarter and better looking than you.” Another image reads, “Albert’s Office Tip: This is the look you give a boss who wants you to work over the weekend.” Following in the footsteps of Grumpy Cat, another feline with a permanently moody expression due to dwarfism, Albert has become a social media sensation.
Albert is a type of Selkirk Rex, which is famous for its untamed, curly fur. However, it is not commonly associated with a ferocious demeanor.
Regardless of the perspective from which Albert is captured, his sullen demeanor remains constant.
The mood of Mike and Susan Singleton, owners of Albert the cat, is strikingly different from that of their own feline who has earned the nickname ‘grumpy cat.’ In one photo, Albert is caught digging through the garbage and defiantly staring at the camera. In another, he glares menacingly at the camera with his paw resting on his toy cat’s tail. Despite his bad temper, Albert’s fluffy poodle-like fur has made him a popular figure in his own right. One Instagram user described him as emanating “pure unbridled hate” while others compared him to a Disney Villain. Some fans appreciate his “b**** resting face” and even find his scowl endearing.
