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. 

With a strong 289K followers on Instagram, this cat is officially way cooler than almost everyone I know.

His claim to fame is his big blue eyes.

But he's pretty darn awesome besides that too.

He's got a personality even bigger than those blues!

Just look at him sticking his tongue out at you! Silly cat.

Better believe he can rock the fancy look.

I mean, he's basically a little Leo waiting to take the big screen by storm!

And toys? Well, he loves those a lot. 

He can sit and chill like no other cat I know! But it's not all fun and games...

He can get to work like a boss too. 

"Excuse me pooch, I need those pawpers by four sharp or claws will be released!"

And knows all about the beloved coffee breaks of his humans. 

He takes his with whole milk. None of that non-fat stuff, thank you very much!

He's ready to be a plus-one to all the top parties.

But he's probably totally booked by now, to be honest.

If you're lucky, you can catch him in one of his goofy moods. 

Like this one, where he's screaming for belly rubs!

Or maybe you catch him staring up into the camera, his most prized possession. 

You have to wonder what he's thinking about behind those big blue eyes.

Whatever it is he's doing, he does it with some serious flair. 

I mean, just look at this expression!

And here, he's the cutest cat (and Left Shark) in the world.

My apologies go out to any cats and/or Left Sharks I've hurt by this declaration.
