Gatoelho is a half-cat, half-bunny from Brazil that’s name combines the Portuguese words for cat and bunny. He has a cat’s face, a kinda bunny-ish body, a pom pom tail, and even hops around. But is Gatoelho really a super cute cat-bunny hybrid?
Sorry to say that’s fake news. He actually has a genetic condition that shortened his spine, with only 1 in 200,000 expected to live. But thanks to the combo of nine lives and a lucky rabbit’s foot, Gatoelho is living a happy and healthy life. He’s even a great climber and can keep up with his cat friends!

While he has several feline friends, they don’t always get along. #typical
He really seems to appreciate life, even taking the time to smell the roses.
Even with his health condition, he’s still (slowly) working to get his driver’s license.
And overall, Gatoelho is one cool cat(bunny).
