kourtney-kardashian-catFor all their fame and money, I don’t think I’ve ever been jealous of a Kardashian until now, but today I find myself deeply envious because Kourtney Kardashian got a cat for Christmas. (Being a Kardashian, she probably calls it Kourtney Kardashian’s Khristmas Kat.) And it’s really, really cute.

“Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas. Our newest member of the family,” she posted, along with a photo that will definitely make you want a kitty.

The tiny little whisker-face appears to be a Bengal, which is a special breed created by crossing a domestic house cat with an Asian Leopard cat. They are still nice domestic cats that will not eat your face, but they keep their cool, leopard-like spots. If you’re going to carry around a leopard-print accessory, they don’t get much cuter than this. (My friend has one that likes to swim around in the bathtub.)

Given the fact that Kourtney Kardashian has more than six million Instagram followers, this is probably going to make people want some Bengal cats. That’s understandable because they are super cute, but cuteness is not limited to fancy cats, and Bengal cats can also be acquired from rescues so they won’t cost you a whole bunch of dollars.

kourtney-kardashian-bengal-cat-2OMG, so cute. Look at those giant ears! I don’t even care if it’s a Kardashian kat and costs $2,000. I want to put its whole head in my mouth and shower it in tiny catnip toys.
