If you’re hypnotized before you reach the end of this article, we want you to know we’re really sorry about that.

The newest animal captivating Instagram right now is Coby, a British shorthaired cat with snow white fur and hypnotic blue eyes (and his Instagram page should come with a warning: ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK).

Careful, another picture is coming:


Yes, the idea that this magnificently beautiful creature could be a stuffed animal did enter our minds, but that theory quickly crumbled when we received an email response from the feline’s owner on Wednesday.


Like Brad Pitt and Jake Gyllenhaal before him, we learned that Coby is so much more than just a pretty face (with more than 300,000 followers on Instagram).

“Coby’s personality is extremely affectionate and playful,” his Washington, D.C.-based owner writes in an email. “He loves to follow me around and sleeps on my pillow every night. He also enjoys tuna, chasing feathers, and snuggling. Surprisingly, Coby loves to play in the water.”
