Instagram is home to many animals with unique features, but this adorable cat is really something. Meet Gringo, a one-year-old British Shorthair who has such a sophisticated mustache, you can almost hear its accent. All it needs now is a top hat, a pair of round eyeglasses, and a tobacco pipe and it should get its own Victorian-era detective show.
This 1-year-old kitty lives in France with his owners Sabrine and Romain, and his brother Milko. This famous cat had almost 60,000 followers on Instagram when his account was hacked earlier this year. Now, the fancy mustache cat is trying to get to where he was with his new page, filled with adorable cat photos.
“Gringo is a happy kitty, full of life and with a really nice personality. He loves to play all day and all night, get up to mischief like climbing on curtains, scratching the couch and jumping in the plants”, Sabrine told Just Something. “He likes to stand on his back paws, just like a meerkat. He can stay a couple of minutes in that position, and it’s hilarious”. Gringo is definitely an unusual cat, and so is his attitude “Gringo always sniffs our plates to see if there’s something good for him to eat, and he likes to steal our sponge from the kitchen just to chew it, so we have to hide it every time”.
Sabrine and Romain found a picture of Gringo on a popular French cattery site and they instantly fell in love with the beautiful cat. The fact that they already had a cat named Milko didn’t matter as well; they had already been thinking about getting another one. Gringo was 3 months old when they brought it home, and the kitties instantly became best friends. Now, they’re completely inseparable.
