Look out, Grumpy Cat. Albert The Cat is on the rise. His fans (who’d never even heard of him a few days ago) total in the millions. MILLIONS. How exactly did he reach such overnight stardom?
By being photographed wearing the legendary “cone of shame.”
Albert lives in Portland, Oregon, with his pet parent, Jean Baker. After the kitty had a cyst removed earlier this week, he was forced to wear a cone to prevent him from pulling out his stitches.. Jean snapped the hilarious picture of Albert, then shared it with a friend who posted it on Imgur, where it was an instant hit.
