If you have watched the “Shrek” films, you must be familiar with Puss in Boots – the charming cat that wears boots. His cute and suave personality, as well as his sword-fighting abilities, are well-known. However, his most powerful weapon is his big, pleading eyes that are impossible to resist.
One would assume that such large, round eyes could only be found in animation, but we have discovered a real-life cat that looks exactly like Puss in Boots.
Her name is Pisco, a three-year-old Golden British Shorthair who lives with her parents in New York City. When her family first got her, they didn’t immediately realize that they got their very own Puss in Boots copycat. After all, kittens typically have wide eyes.
Pisco also didn’t have quite the same color as Puss in Boots, and her fur was fluffier, so it took a while before her owners realized she had a fictional twin.
Pisco has become quite popular online because of his stunning eyes. At the time of writing, his Instagram account has amassed over 615,000 followers. It’s not hard to see why – his eyes are simply captivating, especially when paired with his chubby cheeks.
Pisco’s owners regularly share photos of him dressed up in various outfits on his Instagram feed.
According to a blog managed by his owners, Pisco is generally a very mellow cat who “usually goes with the flow.” However, during photoshoots, they have to be extra careful to ensure that nothing is bothering him, whether it be the costumes or the way the pictures are taken.
“You can tell he is content if he jumps around during our photoshoots and is cheerfully chasing the toy chosen to keep him looking at the camera,” his parents wrote.
If Pisco enjoys the photoshoot, they will keep taking some shots until they are content. If the cat is in a costume, his owners limit the session to a few minutes to prevent him from getting upset.
“The aim should be to take the costume off before any hint of annoyance even begins to show,” they said.
However, if Pisco seems uninterested and chooses to lay down or walk away, even if a toy is present, his owners stop the photoshoot immediately or permanently remove any costume he’s wearing. This helps build trust between them and Pisco, ensuring that the cat won’t be forced to do anything he doesn’t want to.
It’s reassuring to know that Pisco’s owners prioritize his well-being.
Just like everyone else, we can’t get enough of this feline’s cuteness. Enjoy Pisco’s adorable photos by browsing through the gallery below.
