A video of a human mom chatting with her cat is going viral, thanks to his “thick Southern accent,” according to burgeoning social media star Gambino Bambino’s Instagram page.
Gambino the cat’s human — identified only by the first name of Tawny — taped the tabby drawling out noises that sound like “Well, hi!” and “mom.”
Of course, the internet is lapping it up. Tawny’s clip of her “Southern gentleman” has racked up nearly a half-million views on Insta this week — and a whopping 1.4 million likes on the Tik Tok platform.
“He does a lot of chatting,” Tawny told the Today Show, adding that he gives his cat brother, Tom Petty, the silent treatment. “They don’t talk to each other — just to me and my husband.”
The unabashed cat lady says most of the online reaction has been positive — but there have been some questions about his cat collar that she wants to clarify.
That’s no shock collar: Gambino, a stray until December 2014, is wearing a “pet tracker” collar for when he braves the great outdoors, according to a post on the official Facebook page he shares with his brother Tom.
