Proof That Gizzi Erskine's Cat, Ponzu, Is The Cutest Cat On Instagram

Nikki Barr

Remember London's "cutest cat", Polly Nanin? Well she's about to be knocked off her furry throne by a tiny-pawed little beast; and he goes by the name 'Ponzu'.

The Ponz - as he's now been coined - resides in a little house in Hackney, London, with his human friend, Gizzi and her other tiny-eared friend, Kimchi.

The 24-week-old little lilac Scottish Fold has already managed to build an army of fans through Gizzi's Instagram page, frequently demanding "less food, more Ponz*" in a bid to see more of their favourite fluffy scallywag up to no good.

*this was us.

So let's just take a moment to appreciate The Ponz in all his grey glory...

This is how Ponzu likes to be tickled when he's feeling sad:

When he was first introduced to his new home, Ponzu decided the only place safe to sleep was in his human friend's hat... and if said safe slumber spot was rumbled, he roared like a lion to protect himself...

After his hat was compromised, Ponzu found a new safe place for sleep inside a shopping bag, but then he got stuck and stayed there all day:

Then there was the time Ponzu got so excited about seeing a toilet flush for the first time that he jumped into it and had to be rescued...

It took a little while for Ponzu to become accepted by fellow furry friend, Kimchi, but he didn't mind waiting his turn for the water bowl...

Sometimes, when he's bored, Ponzu likes to see how high he can climb.

Ponzu will eat ALL the food. You got coffe? Ponzu wants coffee. You got green juice? Ponzu wants green juice. Hot chocolate? Noodles? Ponzu wants it. Ponzu will eat anything...

OM NOM NOM NOM NOM...




Ponzu is so dedicated to his quest for food, he has no sense of dignity...

Ponzu can't cook, but he can always dream...

Ponzu is happy to pose for gratitutous pictures of his silky paws...




Then there was the one time Ponzu decided to take a closer look inside his human friend's bathtub...

And he still hasn't learnt his lesson to this day.

Ponzu is not a fan of work and he'll make damn sure you know about it.

Ponzu sometimes gets camera shy...

Usually when he's focusing on his dinner...

When he's not eating or exploring, Ponzu is usually playing and posing precariously on furniture for ALL THE ATTENTION...

Ponzu's real-life brother now lives with Caroline Flack, he's called Waffle. Waffle is also a troublemaker.

And, finally, after all his daily adventures, Ponzu likes to sleep like this...




We Love you, Ponz.
