All cats have beautiful eyes if you ask me. But there are some cats with eyes that are so brilliant and expressive that they seem to suck you right in. Coby the cat, a British Shorthair out of California, is definitely one of those cats. His brilliant blue eyes sparkle and shine, and the dark accents of his luxurious silver coat make his awesome eyes stand out even more.
Coby and his baby blues have attracted millions of fans all across the globe. And his love of the camera and looking handsome has elevated him to celebrity cat status. But aside from his internet fame, his owner reports that Coby is a sweet boy.
I love how his eyes look as if he’s always wearing eyeliner, or should I say, “guyliner”…
According to his website, CobyTheCat.com, his owner shares what he’s like in real life when he’s not hamming it up for the camera:
“I’m playful, sassy, and affectionate—if you deserve it and/or treats are involved. I love to snuggle, steal the covers, and play hide and seek. I take food very seriously, and I can get a bit testy if my meals aren’t served on time. Unlike other cats, I enjoy the water; particularly splashing in it and watching my mom clean it up. I like to pose and strut my fluff for the camera. But only on my terms.”
Coby is nearly five years old, and he lives a good life at home with his human. And if you’re wondering where the name came from, his website says that the name Coby is a tribute to cobalt blue, the color of his now famous eyes. Coby has a personality as big as his baby blues—and apparently an appetite for tuna, too.
When he’s not in cat model mode, he loves to hog the bed and rest up on his precious slumber. When you’re as handsome as he is, clearly you must get your rest!
Look at Coby as a wee kitten. Those dark toe beans are too much! 😻
Coby definitely knows how to be silly too when he’s not busy looking strikingly handsome…
