The internet is full of celebrity cats. Recently, a new fluff ball has joined the ranks of internet cat superstars like Grumpy Cat, Lil Bub and Colonel Meow. Meet Napoleon, the Persian cat that is stealing the spotlight of cat-centric images all over the virtual universe. Paired with his owner and an especially expressive face, Napoleon is winning hearts over with creative photo shoots.

Owner and photographer Jesus Segura doesn't state how he found the little two month old kitten, just that it "came knocking on his door." Jesus Segura was a cameraman that had been looking for work for over a year, while searching, his little kitten became the focus of much of his work at home, whose expressive face was a major source of inspiration as the kitten learned and experience new things every day. Soon Segura began using green screens, tiny sets and furniture to pose Napoleon then took the photos to Photoshop and placed the kitten into a number of adventures. Napoleon can be seen in a pub drowning his sorrows over a lost love or fighting giant squid in the ocean as well as a number of other settings.

Segura is no stage parent though; he assures that Napoleon is given the true celebrity treatment. Like any diva, Napoleon only poses for 15 minutes of pictures at a time with his owner respecting his eating and sleeping time.

Jesus Segura has taken his pictures and started an Indiegogo page to fund the production of unique calendars and postcards of his creative imaginings. Originally, he had set his fund raising goal as $3,000, but is currently sitting at double that amount. The fundraiser still has until October 31st for those that want to help Napoleon on his quest for world domination, the true goal of all cats.
