According to claims on her Instagram account, the fantastically named Melissa Einstein is “the most famous cat from Russia.” Having spent an entertaining afternoon perusing through this Scottish Fold’s gallery, I’m not going to contest her status. Not only is Melissa remarkably tolerant when it comes to being dressed up in a range of fancy outfits and accessories, she is also blessed with what appears to be an amazingly dextrous tongue.

In the interests of cross-country cat-image relations, here’s your photo primer on Melissa Einstein.

Melissa Einstein is certainly one formal lady.

Here she is back in her playful kitten days.

Ms. Einstein is a master of the classic smoosh face pose.

Behold this enthusiastic cat dance party!

Just your standard Wednesday morning tea session going on here.

Where’s Melissa?

The look says, “Guilty!” The pose says, “What you gonna do about it?”

Slow-motion tongue action and a natty orange bowtie. What’s not to like?


Wet kitty alert!

I’m honestly not sure what’s going on here …
