The famous physician Albert Einstein is the inspiration behind the name of a cat named Albert due to their similar white-grey curly hair. The Instagram page dedicated to Albert features various images of him in different situations, all with a disapproving frown and glare directed towards the camera. His owners, Mike and Susan Singleton from Salt Lake City, USA, manage the social media account and have written a bio for Albert that reads “Rejected show cat, but I’ll show them.” Along with each photo, there’s a sarcastic caption that gives the fluffy feline a sinister yet humorous internal dialogue. One image shows Albert staring fiercely at the camera with the caption, “I’m not grumpy or angry, I’m just smarter and better looking than you.” Another picture has the caption, “Albert’s Office Tip: This is the look you give a boss who wants you to work over the weekend.” The popularity of Albert’s Instagram account is similar to Grumpy Cat, another frowning feline with a permanent moody expression that found worldwide acclaim.
