The Cat’s Meow: Orange Tabby with ‘Thick Southern Accent’ Goes Viral on Instagram

Commenters agree wholeheartedly that this kitty is Southern at heart

Um hello real life Garfield…

Gambino who is an orange cat is currently picking up steam on social media for his weirdly distinctive meow.

Many people are claiming it sounds like he’s saying “Well, hi” in a “thick Southern accent.”

In a video shared on Instagram, Gambino is seen running past another black-and-white cat, Tom, and hiding behind the refrigerator. As Gambino’s owner follows him, the orange-and-white tabby surprises with a unique meow before grooming himself.

The video has been viewed over 600,000 times on Instagram alone, but has reportedly gathered millions of views across various social media platforms.

Gambino, who is seen wearing a pet track on his collar, was a stray until December 2014, when his new and current owners first brought him into their home, according to a Facebook post.
