This striped and spotted Bengal cat’s fur is mesmerizing the internet

A Bengal cat named after the hammer-wielding Norse god, Thor, is making rounds on the internet for his breathtaking appearance. Having a moniker identical to a god is a lot to live up to, but Thor certainly does it justice.

Gazing into Thor’s green eyes is enough to make anyone feel mesmerized. His majestic coat is surreal, that one couldn’t help but want to stare at him all day long for his undeniable beauty – a true elusive stunner that is rarely seen in public.

Lucky for us, his owner, Rani Cucicov, decided to share his beautiful cat to the world. Thor has his own Instagram page which has amassed a following of 214,000 people and a Facebook page with close to 36,000 likes.

Bengals are known to have a jungle-cat appearance, and Thor is no exception with his beautiful leopard spots and tiger stripes.

“I definitely feel like his servant!” Rani told Bored Panda. “Whenever he opens his mouth, we are ready to serve him, but I gotta admit that we get lots of love in place for it!”

This feline is not your ordinary house cat. Aside from his gorgeous appearance, Bengals have some wildcat DNA in them, which means that they may exhibit unique behaviors and traits that we most probably don’t see in other domestic cats.

Bengals like Thor are very playful and vocal. “He talks all day long and if we don’t answer his meowing, he gets pissed,” Rani says.

They can also learn tricks and even like to take walks on a leash. They also love to splash in the water, unlike other cats that wouldn’t even dip their toes in anything wet.

Rani describes his Bengal cat as “lovable” and “very active”.

“And 1 time a day, mostly before going to sleep, he gets crazy and climbs on the walls,” he says. “He seems like a child who doesn’t want to go to sleep”

Thor is also curious about the new people that he meets.

“When we have a visitor, he doesn’t run away like some cats, but he goes to check who it is and to smell their scent,” Rani says.
