For cat lovers, looking at cats on the internet is just the most relaxing thing ever. Their amazing beauty and charming antics just make us go all gooey inside and all the vagaries and stresses and unpredictabilities of life all recede into the background as we settle into the familiar and snug habit of internet cat watching.

Here's a cat that is the most beautiful supermodel kitty of them all. With his absolutely stunning fur and characterfull face, three-year-old Thor from Kortenberg, Belgium has captivated people everywhere with his complete and utter perfection. 

Thor's owner, Rani Cucicov, freely admitted to Bored Panda that she is his slave and we can see why. "Whenever he opens his mouth, we are ready to serve him, but I gotta admit that we get lots of love in place for it!" she says.

He is apparently a very chatty cat baby and gets annoyed if his humans do not respond. He is so much a part of the family he even gets to star in professional family shots.

Bengal cats are known for being as wild as they look so new owners can find them hard to handle with all their active and mischievous activities. That said, Thor looks like he finds plenty of opportunity for downtime and snuggles...

Thor is a true star and like all celebrities has been accused of fakery. Rani told HuffPost that people have claimed that Thor has been photoshopped, but she assures fans this simply isn't true. "The funniest thing I read was that people were saying that Thor wasn't real and that we just photoshopped a cat and added a tiger's body. Of course this isn't true. Thor is real and definitely not photoshopped or anything."

He even has his own Snapchat (thorthebengal), Facebook and Instagram and because we're too far away to have a snuggle or game of Hide-and-Seek with him, we'll have to make do with those.
