Chó found fame after he was spotted minding a seafood stall in the northeastern city of Hai Phong while wearing a tiny imperial robe and hat. The soft orange cutie sauntered over wearing the yellow costume and a pair of tiny sunglasses, immediately attracting attention to his unusual look.

Chó means Dog in Vietnamese, and his owner Lê Quốc Phong said he chose the name because the cat has such a dog-like personality and isn’t shy or afraid of people. His owner also says that Chó has loved the camera since he was a kitten, and that Chó has many girlfriends.
