Meet George The Human Cat Who Loves To Stand On Two Legs Just Like A Person

Don't panic, this isn't a sign of cats evolving and their imminent rise to be the dominant species of this planet and enslave us all as their pets (hopefully anyway). But it is quite bizarre.

This is George the cat who since he was six weeks old has liked to stand on his two hind legs and stare into the distance, like a human. Or, probably more accurately, like a meerkat when they're looking for predators.

The eight month old exotic shorthair is now an Insta-celeb after his owner, Andrew, posted some photos to Reddit of him standing—and naturally people went wild for it.

So Andrew created an Instagram account for him and managed to amass 11,000 followers in just a couple of days. According to his owner he's isn't in any pain when he stands and he does it when he hears something and wants to check out what the heck it was.

He can stand on his hind legs for around 20 seconds, surveying his immediate area and no doubt thinking he's a cut above most cats. Which he kind of is.

But, as we stated, don't panic yet. When he starts standing with opposable thumbs then we can all start to herald the end of the anthropocene and pondering a Planet of the Apes style situation, but with felines.

For now lets just enjoy how adorable George looks standing like that. Check out some pics of him below and follow him on Instagram here.
