gringo the cat

British Shorthair cat Gringo is a celebrity and influencer in his own right. The kitty is one year old and lives in France with his owners Romain and Sabrine, and another cat named Milko, who he is best friends with. They’re completely inseparable!

Gringo is a very bright and happy cat. He’s got a lot of life in him and he likes to get in trouble. He’ll spend the whole day playing, clawing on curtains to climb them, jumping through his owner’s plants, and giving the sofa a good scratch.

He also loves food, like many cats – so he tries to sniff dinner plates for remnants, and he even uses the kitchen sponge as a chew toy when no one’s looking!

But why is Gringo so popular? Well, Gringo has a very sophisticated and elegant mustache!

Though he’s a playful, mischievous, and energetic cat, his appearance gives him the appearance of a well-to-do gentleman from the Victorian era.

After his old Instagram account was hacked at around 60k followers, Gringo is now building up his audience base again. You can follow his adorable adventures here – or just take a look at these 31 adorable pictures of him!
