What makes the internet go crazy for a cat? Well, the cat usually has to do something pretty freaking cool! You know, things like "yassing" or playing the piano, perhaps eating a whole pan of lasagna...
Sometimes though, just sometimes, you come across a cat who doesn't say or do anything particularly remarkable, and yet the internet falls madly in love. Why? Those cats have something we find incredibly captivating — a marking, an expression, an odd paw. Whatever it is, we can't get enough of the oddity. The exception.
The latest cat to reach internet stardom is one of those exceptional cats that can get by on their looks (and a little spike of personality). Let's take a look:
Meet Coby the cat. He's a British shorthair.
His claim to fame is his big blue eyes.
He's got a personality even bigger than those blues!
He's quite the charmer, you know.
And he wears all the coolest cat clothes.
He dresses up like a big kitty too.
Better believe he can rock the fancy look.
And toys? Well, he loves those a lot.
He can get to work like a boss too.
And knows all about the beloved coffee breaks of his humans.
He's ready to be a plus-one to all the top parties.
If you're lucky, you can catch him in one of his goofy moods.
Or maybe you catch him staring up into the camera, his most prized possession.
Whatever it is he's doing, he does it with some serious flair.
Here, he looks like the smartest cat in the world.
And here, he's the cutest cat (and Left Shark) in the world.
