Cat Instagram Insta-Success

Supermodel Gigi Hadid adopts kitten (who becomes overnight internet celebricat).

Supermodel Gigi Hadid spends her days shooting for Maybelline, Victoria’s Secret PINK and GUESS; walking the runways for designers like Marc Jacobs, and hanging with besties Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner. But fashion’s current It Girl is also an avid animal lover. Case in point: Cleo.

On Sunday, Gigi introduced her sweet little rescue tabby (she was found in a car engine last week) to her 4 million followers with this picture and caption:

Last week she was found in a car engine, and today I adopted her. Meet Cleo. ??

Shortly thereafter, love for little Cleo was expressed by Gigi’s mother “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Yolanda Foster (who refers to Cleo as her “furry granddaughter”):

??Welcome to my new furry grand daughter……. @theRealCleoHadid rescued by @gigihadid #PreciousMoments

Followed by Gigi’s brother, Anwar Hadid (clearly Cleo loving is a family affair):

??It’s a family affair…… #WeLoveBabyCleo @therealcleohadid @anwarhadid

The icing on the cake, however, was when Cleo appeared on Instagram again – this time via her very own account @therealcleohadid, which, unsurprisingly, already has 12.7k followers (with only posts).

Looks like this former down-on-her-luck kitty is on her way to celebricat status!

Have you fallen for Cleo the way we have?
