A Cat With a Mustache? Count Us In!

Instagram cat, Gringo, has caught Instagram by storm, thanks to his delightful white mustache, forever stamped under his nose. A British Shorthair based in France, where he shares a home with his Pawrents, Sabrine and Romain, and his brother Milko, his hyperactive personality has gained him the nickname “Mustache Tornado,”

“Gringo is a happy kitty, full of life and with a really nice personality,” Sabrine shared in an interview with Just Something. “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,” she added.


According to her, Gringo also liked to stand on his back paws, just like a meerkat. “He can stay a couple of minutes in that position, and it’s hilarious,” she says. He’s also quite an avid eater. “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,” says his owner.

But when it comes to their owner-pet relationship, it was clearly a case of love at first sight. After seeing a picture of Gringo on the internet, Sabrine and Romain instantly fell in love! They contacted his then owner and adopted him on Nov. 14th, 2018 when he was 3 months old. The rest was history!
