Following in the footsteps (or paw prints) of Grumpy Cat and Angry Cat, this Surprised Cat is ready to join the ranks of internet feline royalty. Banye, an 11-year-old British Shorthair from China, has a perpetual look of surprise thanks to a patch of dark fur strategically grown beneath his mouth.

The startled kitty has started to achieve online fame after his owner, Shanghai-based winnnie, posted photos of him on the Pinterest-like site Duitang. Viewers can't get enough of the adorable cat's big round eyes and permanent "o" of astonishment, whether Banye is sitting in a box, climbing onto his owner's lap, or just sitting pretty for the camera.
