In a now-viral video, the feline can be seen grooming itself before taking over the runway at Istanbul’s Emaar Square Mall on Friday.

Models stepped aside as the cat, donning a white-and-gray fur, walked in full glory.

Clearly, viewers witnessed a literal catwalk before their very eyes.

“Everybody was in shock,” fashion designer Göksen Hakkı Ali told The Dodo.

It’s unclear how the cat ended up onstage.

When asked if the confident feline had a future in fashion, the designer replied, “Haha, maybe … why not?”

The video shared by Instagram user @hknylcn has received at least 274,600 views.

Needless to say, people can’t get enough of the real catwalk.

“A CAT on the CATWALK.”

“The REAL catwalk.”

“A catwalk … as it should be.”

“That cat is the star of the show and he or she even tries to knock out the competition.”

“‘Turkey’s Next Top Model: Pet Edition,’ hands down winner.”
