The internet is awash in fancy cats who become social-media stars, but Gringo might just be the fanciest fancy cat yet.In the first place, he's a British Shorthair (fancy)—and he lives in France (super fancy)! We can almost imagine the super-posh accent Gringo would have, if only he could speak.

At a hale and hearty one year old, this extravagantly mustachioed feline lives with his humans Sabrine and Romaine, and his fur brother Milko.Before an unfortunate hacking incident that the family is still recovering from, Gringo was a rising star with nearly 60,000 followers.Clearly, his new page is making up for lost time!
"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 tells Just Something. "He likes to stand on his back paw, just like a meerkat. He can stay a couple of minutes in that position, and it's hilarious." And aside from being a looker, this handsome kitty is chock-full of purrsonality. "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".
It may be hard to believe with such a gorgeous kitty, but Gringo started life as a rescue. Romain and Sabine discovered a picture of him online through a French rescue group and instantly fell in love with the then three-month-old kitten. And who could blame them?They'd been thinking about adopting a companion for Milko, and the two became instant friends.We hear that these days, they're completely inseparable.
Love, beauty, and feline hijinks—what cat-loving family could ask for more?
