Take for example Hamilton "The Hipster Cat" He has a white mustache mark on his face and even has his own clothing line. You can find this hip cat on his very own instagram page.

Then there's Lil Bub who is arguably the most famous cat on the Internet, Lil Bub has more than 2 Million Facebook likes and her own youtube channel. She was born a "perma-kitten" and a dawrf cat with abnormally short legs. She has no teeth which means her tongue is sticking out at all times giving her an adorable lolling tongue.



This is one of most famous cat's anywhere online Tartar Sauce a.k.a. Grumpy Cat moved past Internet fame when she appeared on the front page of the Wall Street Journal in May of 2013. Her face is plastered all over the web in the form of memes and Youtube videos and she has more than 8,000,000 likes on Facebook.
