Cat Lovers Beware! This Mustache Tornado Will Steal Your Heart

After seeing a picture of Gringo – a 3 months old British Shorthair up for adoption – Sabrine and Romain knew instantly he was the one. But even they couldn’t imagine that he would be such an Instagram sweetheart. Now, only a year after adopting him, Gringo has more than 50k followers – a fanbase that is growing by the hour.

“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.”

But of course, it was his white mustache which first caught their attention. Nicknamed “Mustache Tornado,” his hyperactive personality means there’s never a shortage of chaos around the house. According to Sabrine, Gringo can 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 a huge fan of anything food-related. “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.
