A Tabby/Siamese mix cat in Japan has gained a massive following on Instagram for his cuteness and a noticeable, defining trait that makes him a unique social media star.
Japanese online celebrity kitty Sol-kun has so far accumulated an impressive 142,000 followers on the popular photo-sharing platform, thanks in part to his blue eyes that are permanently crossed.
In the past four years, the cross-eyed kitty has been graced his owner’s Instagram account along with his older sibling, Cocomo.

While Cocomo has his own adorable qualities, Sol has always been the kitty who steals the spotlight with each post that has him on it, reports RocketNews24.
Cross-eyed since he was born, the now five-year-old social media star has been nicknamed “Yorime-chan” by his fans as yorime is the Japanese term for “cross-eyed.”
