Smoothie the Cat Is Instagram's New Beauty Queen
Get lost in her emerald eyes
Long strawberry blonde locks, bright green eyes … really furry legs. Yes, Smoothie is a real dream girl, for a cat.
The gorgeous British longhair is burning up Instagram with her stunning shots. Smoothie’s biggest is admirer is her owner Arvid van Boekel, who started posting photos of the feline from their Netherlands home after becoming obsessed with the cat’s looks.
“I started this Instagram account because I was posting too many pictures on Facebook, and my friends were complaining (“Another cat pic, really?”),” van Boekel told The Huffington Post in an email. “But I just had so many nice pictures, that I wanted to share with the world … and in a few months Smoothie gained a lot of followers all around the world.”
That’s over 150,000 followers to be more exact. You think living with a cat who takes “sitting pretty” to a new level would be nothing but wonderful, but van Boekel admits there is one downside.
“It’s really hard to concentrate when there’s … such a photogenic cat around you the whole time!” the owner added.
Smoothie has a near perfect personality to match her mesmerizing looks. Van Boekel says the feline is a calm and affectionate cuddle-bug, who never minds stopping to strike a pose.
