Don’t be fooled, ladies and gentlemen. This may look like a cat. Walks like a cat. Meows like a cat. But what you see here almost certainly is a dog.

Most cats play it cool. Maybe they’ll let you pet them today, maybe not. They’ll sit in your lap when they’re ready but if you put them there without their say-so, they’ll hop right off. And don’t try any of that baby-talk you use on your pup with them – you’re more likely to get a skeptical stare than a wagging tail.

Fitness blogger Rob of Muscle and Mat has a different kind of cat. Kodi is a dog in cat’s clothing. Unlike the aloof cool so many cats keep, Kodi is his own kind of cool. He’s not afraid to ask for cuddles, pets and attention – he doesn’t believe in playing hard-to-get like most cats. And his attitude towards baby talk? Adorable.

Rob recently posted a video of him asking Kodi, “Who’s a good boy?” and Kodi lets him know repeatedly, “your good boy is this cat right here!”

Who’s a good boy? Kodi!

Who’s good at being a cat? Somebody else!
