With 567,000 Instagram followers at the time of writing, there's little doubting the star power of Thai wondercat, Roku.

Living with his mum and dad (human), Roku has catapulted to fame with the cutest of antics. Roku is a Scottish fold breed; his distinctive look is actually caused by a genetic mutation that affects the cartilage in the ears and body. 

Roku is indeed charming and sweet and now has a family of his own. His followers have watched him grow from a fluffy kitten (above), into a responsible but fun dad, along with his wife Hachi, who has 64,000 followers of her own.

Somehow we think Roku's popularity will only increase. Make sure you follow him on Instagram and Facebook for your weekly dose of cute.
