Remember the swashbuckling cat from the Shrek franchise that proved so popular he was given his own film? Well, it turns out the cat has its own real-life counterpart in Russia and people are in love.
This is Hosico, a Scottish cat of gold coloring who’s a spitting image of Puss from the Dreamworks films. Hosico’s coloring is striking, and the cat even bears similar dark streaks down his little fluffy forehead. And we haven’t even gotten around to Hosico’s bright, bluish-green eyes, which give him a look of perpetual wonderment.
2-year-old Hosico has recently taken social media by storm with an Instagram account boasting over 500,000 fans and counting. According to the kitty’s account, Hosico — which means “star child” in Japanese (How fitting is that?) — is a bit timid, but like your typical cat enjoys eating, sleeping, and a bit of play.
