A Persian cat who constantly looks angry might be America’s new grumpiest feline, according to his social media followers.

Louis, a six-year-old Persian cat from Austin, Texas, could now be the grumpiest cat in the world.

He has more than 6 000 followers on his Instagram profile that he shares with his furry four-year-old friend, Monae. Louis is now in a competition to be dubbed as the country’s new Grumpy Cat.

Whether he’s playing with Monae, a Lynx Point Siamese, or cuddling up to owner Michelle Alexis (26), the feline can’t help but permanently look infuriated.

After the passing of the original Grumpy Cat, Tardar Sauce, last month, the angriest cats in America have been battling it out for the title.

And Louis might just have what it takes thanks to his yellow eyes which are constantly glazed with fury and a look of dismay.

“Louis is a full breed Persian but people often ask if he has a genetic disorder because they think his facial features are an exception, but he’s completely normal,” Michelle said.

“People usually react saying he looks like a human old man. They love his big marble eyes that he squints so often.”

Part of the reason behind Louis’ grumpiness might be his love-hate relationship with Monae. In fact, Michelle says Monae has always had the upper hand over poor Louis.

“When we got Monae she was a baby and Louis was a full grown cat, but she bullied him for two months straight. She even tackles and picks at him, but really she loves him.”

Michelle says despite his grouchy face Louis is actually so sweet, happy and playful.

“Louis might be considered as the new Grumpy Cat, but he’s very lovable and loves to snuggle. He likes chasing lasers and playing with toys.”
