We’re delighted to introduce you to Benye, a feline who has achieved internet fame with his OMG outlook on life. A wide-eyed British Shorthair kitty, Benye’s tuft of dark fur below his mouth gives the impression that the beautiful feline is forever exclaiming, “Oh My God!”, to the delight of the internet.
Benye became an online sensation after his owner posted pictures of him on Duitang, a Chinese social media site. According to PurrWorld, he was born on the 14th of June, 2003, which means he has had a lot to be surprised about already.
What’s fascinating about this easygoing and undemanding breed is that they almost went extinct in their native England following the Second World War. With the help of other breeds, however, they were thankfully revitalized, and are today popular all around the world, as this example shows.
Following in the footsteps of his more famous British Shorthair cousins, the clever feline of Puss in Boots and the grinning Cheshire Cat of Alice in Wonderland, meet Benye the OMG Cat.
