Jinxy Cat, Jinxy Cat, where are you? Who cares! Because Robert De Niro has a new cat friend. And it's not just any cat, it's "The Internet's Most Famous Cat" Lil Bub!

At the Directors Brunch at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, cochair De Niro finally got his chance to meet the adorable little cat. We say finally, because it was a meeting long in the works.

"I keep saying Little Bub needs to meet Big Bob," cochair Jane Rosenthal joked to THR.

While De Niro is running the fest, Bub is there to promote his documentary, Lil Bub and Friends, which follows the cat and his owner as they explore the popularity of cats on the Web.

No cats were milked in the making of this photo (sorry, that's the last of our Meet the Parents jokes). 

Oh, and your move, Grumpy Cat. Better set a date with Al Pacino for Sundance or something.
