A Mustached Gentleman, Gringo Is A Dapper Cat

Cats are adorable no matter who they are, but there are those with personalities that make them upstanding felines of a fine nature. They sit so proudly and preen their paws with careful consideration while casting assessing eyes over the peasantry. While still a young cat with frisky ways, Gringo the mustachioed cat is this type of dapper darling.

A British shorthair, Gringo smacks of aristocracy with his handsome mustache.

The handsome kitty and his family hails from France. His parents, Sabine and Romain, adopted Gringo when he was three months old. They felt their only kitty Milko needed a companion. Seeing Gringo available for adoption from Les Pattounes du Coeur, Sabine and Romain knew the mustached kitten was meant to complete their family.

While a fine gentleman most of the time, Sabine told Just Something, “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”.

Instagram Star

Instagram has known Gringo and his mustache for some time, but earlier this year, his account was hacked. Unable to retrieve the original account, Gringo and family had to rebuild their following, which had grown to over 60,000 followers. But it hasn’t taken long for the Gringo to earn over 55,000 followers on the new account.

While the original account is lost, the adorability is not. Follow Gringo and see all his mustachioed antics…

Gringo loves to stand on his hind paws, “just like a meerkat,” said Sabine. “He can stay a couple of minutes in that position, and it’s hilarious”…

When Gringo is grumpy, one is put in mind of the Victorian era boxer with his dukes up…

Brotherly love…Milko and Gringo are best buddies even if Milko has to be patient with Gringo “cause i’m a bit hyperactive ‘a Mustache Tornado’”…

Sabine confirms Gringo’s silly ways, “he likes to steal our sponge from the kitchen just to chew it, so we have to hide it every time”. They try to distract the mischievous cat with toys…
