With dreamy blue eyes and hamster-like cheeks, Hosico Cat has amassed a whopping 1.9 million Instagram followers. This cuddly czar-of-cuteness is an 8-yr-outdated golden Scottish Straight from Moscow.
“Hosico seems to be a large amount like Puss in Boots from Shrek, especially in Component 4 exactly where he obtained unwanted fat,” says proprietors Roman and Ksenia. Fans frequently evaluate Hosico Cat to English comedian James Corden. They also say he appears like Garfield — the Monday-hating, spider-squashing, lasagna-obsessed orange cartoon tabby.
Roman and Ksenia acquired Hosico from a breeder after their 15-calendar year-previous Siamese cat, Misha, died from kidney disorder. They started speaking about cat breeds and could not choose concerning the Abyssinian and Scottish Straight. “Then we discovered Hosico in an net advert. His breeder brought him to Moscow from Tula. It is virtually 200 kilometers (124 miles). It was presently late, and tiny Hosico was sleeping.”
He was frightened and full of fleas. At that time, Roman and Ksenia’s daughter was interested in Japan and its lifestyle, so she suggested calling him Hosico, which implies star kid.
Hosico started squeezing into bowls, baskets, and bins. When he finished participating in, he would cease, seem at his owners, and then chatter. “It is the cutest detail,” Roman states, “he sounds so hilarious, pretty much human-like.”
He was so handsome and funny his owners posted some of his pictures on Instagram. The golden fluffy quickly gained followers from all more than the globe. He also became buddies with movie star cats like Nala.
Hosico was even nominated for The Animal Star of 2020. “We have been pretty delighted to receive an invitation to this nomination and take part in the voting. Although we did not win, it was excellent,” Roman suggests. The golden Scottish Straight also has a Zazzle keep that sells exclusive merchandise, these as Hosico Croissant T-Shirts and Saint Basil’s Cathedral Throw Pillows.
When Hosico is not reclining against The Great Pyramid of Giza or sunbathing in Central Park, he spends most of his time in the buff. “Hosico seldom wears costumes for the reason that he does not like them,” Roman suggests, “He tolerates them only if you quickly shoot pics.”
His hobbies are the feline-accepted trilogy of participating in, feeding on, and sleeping. Home vegetation are Hosico’s kryptonite. That is why his proprietors acquire him cat grass once a week. “He is incredibly conservative about his meals. He loves to sniff everything,” Roman states. The celeb cat mainly eats baby meals: beef with pumpkin, zucchini, and hen with buckwheat or rice. He also eats dry cat food stuff and gets a beef or turkey fillet just about every other working day. Hosico weighs between 5.5-6.5 kilograms (12-14 kilos).
Like all cats, Hosico is pretty lively at dawn and dusk. He is so rapid when he operates or jumps that it is practically impossible to shoot. The feline heartthrob is also incredibly energized by new cat toys, but sad to say, he will get bored with them in a 7 days. His beloved toys are a drinking straw and a minimal black rope.
While he is an indoor cat, Hosico occasionally ventures outside the house on a leash and harness. He normally goes to the nearest pet retailer or park. “Consequently, for him, just about every walk is an occasion. All the things appears to be remarkable to him: birds, unique appears, and smells,” Roman suggests. “He has a ton of diverse carriers, backpacks, and strollers. He liked his last stroller so considerably he pretty much fell asleep in it.”
Guiding the scenes, Hosico is very timid toward all strangers. When he hears the doorbell, he operates away and hides. “Heading to the vet is demanding for him, but he tries to behave effectively, does not split out or scream, and endures all procedures with firmness,” Roman suggests. The reigning king of adorableness is also a consummate gentleman. When woman cats take a look at to breed and are not in the mood,Hosico respects their needs, and no feline frolicking comes about.
