Puss in Boots from Shrek 2 is one of the most iconic feline characters in film history, but what if we told you there’s a real-life cat that looks just like it? Pisco the Cat found a huge following on social media thanks to its striking resemblance to the beloved animated character.
With over 600,000 followers and counting, Pisco is one of Instagram’s most popular cats, and it’s not difficult to see how it became such a huge sensation. Thanks to its irresistible big eyes and golden fur, this kitty looks just like Puss in Boots, but it’s much less mischievous and conniving than its movie doppelgänger.
According to Pisco’s owner, he’s a huge cuddle bear, but that wasn’t the case when they first welcomed him home.
“He was very skittish and wouldn’t want us to hold him or touch him at all. But every day we show him it’s okay and we wouldn’t force him to cuddle or grab him. Soon he became a lot more confident and started to get curious,” Pisco’s owner told Metro.
This Golden British Shorthair kitty now lives in New York with his owner. Pisco’s resemblance to Puss in Boots made him a huge social media sensation and it’s always fun to watch him wear adorable outfits and pull off fun shenanigans on his Instagram page.
