An extremely cute kitten has recently became an internet sensation due to his unusual markings. The 9-month-old Persian feline looks just like Zorro – the iconic masked character.
Though his name is Boy, now everyone is calling him Zorro, because of the black fur around his eyes that make him looks like he’s wearing a face mask – just like the famous movie character used to. But not just the eyes help him to bear this incredible resemblance to the masked vigilante, but also the black patch on his head and ears that look just like he’s wearing a hat.
Boy, or Zorro – his online nickname – lives with his dad, Indraini Wahyudin Noor in Banjarmasin, Indonesia. Although the 50-year-old man shares his home with several other cats, he loves Boy the most. After all, the super-cute cat made him a TikTok sensation, where he brought him roughly 600,000 followers.

“The cat’s name is Boy, but many people call him Zorro. I have many cats but this is the only one who has a mask on his face. He’s my favourite cat,” the owner Noor said. “He is a very spoiled cat, he always wants to be petted, cuddled and held. He likes to play a lot but he hates being bathed each week.”
Indraini also said he never thought his cat would ever became so famous online, but he’s more than happy with that. And now, whenever he uploads a footage with his cat, he makes sure to play the Zorro movie’s theme tune.
“I also think he looks just like Zorro, and I think he likes regularly listening to the Zorro music,” the man said. “People who see him for the first time usually say that he’s unique, cute and how he looks just like Zorro. They even call him the cat thief.”
Despite he’s less than a year old, Boy already has a son, Bandit, who – guess what – looks like a mini Zorro himself.
