Remember London's "cutest cat", Polly Nanin? Well she's about to be knocked off her furry throne by a tiny-pawed little beast; and he goes by the name 'Ponzu'.
The Ponz - as he's now been coined - resides in a little house in Hackney, London, with his human friend, Gizzi and her other tiny-eared friend, Kimchi.
The 24-week-old little lilac Scottish Fold has already managed to build an army of fans through Gizzi's Instagram page, frequently demanding "less food, more Ponz*" in a bid to see more of their favourite fluffy scallywag up to no good.
*this was us.
So let's just take a moment to appreciate The Ponz in all his grey glory...
This is how Ponzu likes to be tickled when he's feeling sad:
When he was first introduced to his new home, Ponzu decided the only place safe to sleep was in his human friend's hat... and if said safe slumber spot was rumbled, he roared like a lion to protect himself...
After his hat was compromised, Ponzu found a new safe place for sleep inside a shopping bag, but

Is it bad news for equality that Lady Gaga's changing her name, or good that the media is surprised? Our (now married) wedding blogger discussesBy Kim Easton Smith | Yahoo's Wedding Blog – Thu, May 14, 2015 09:37 BST
Lady Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, has revealed that when she marries she will take financé Taylor Kinney's surname.
The news has made some waves in the media, which means either it's a big deal that a woman who's made a name for herself (pun intended) wants to change it, or that it's a slow news day and 'woman plans to change her name after marriage' is all they could find.
If it's the former it echoes something I've been struggling with in my first month as a wife. I'm yet to make a decision on whether to take my husband's name or not. And while some women (perhaps Gaga included) seem to find it a happy and easy choice, for me it's rather agonising.
Should Women Take Their Husband's Name?
Do I take this opportunity to reinvent myself, combine us as a singly-named family unit and mark myself as an official Mrs, or do I make a statement that I have no need to change my name and stick to Ms. My husband and I are no less of a team for having different names.
I don't think there'sRead More »from Does It Matter If Lady Gaga Takes Her Fiancé's Name?
p>It's pretty darn easy to be jealous of actress and model Jaime King.
The Hart of Dixie star is absolutely gorgeous, naturally lithe and her eyebrows put Cara delevingne's to shame.
Now heavily pregnant with her second child, the star has been sporting an array of absolutely fabulous outfits, proving pregnancy-chic just comes naturally for some.
(And yes, we're forgiving her for her Burberry 'London in Los Angeles' party frock).
Just a casual peruse of her Instagram account will have you slavering over some of the amazing garments she's assembling.
Here she is nailing a tricky button down plus full length skirt combo:
And, more recently, she took her style to a whole new level of street in this get up:
Then there was this delightfully '70s-inspired look. How every on trend:
But her succession of fabulous outfits haven't just been for Instagram's eyes only.

Ivan LeCasque believes he is saving relationships by teaching men how to persuade their partners to have boob jobs. Really.By Sophie Tighe | #ICYMI – Wed, May 13, 2015 11:49 BST
A man in America has written a book to teach men how to convince their partners to get a boob job.Read More »from Man Writes Book On How To Convince Women To Get Bigger Breasts
This modern day Prince Charming, Ivan LeCasque, has penned ‘The How To Convince Her To Get Bigger Breasts Manual’ after successfully persuading four partners to go under the knife.
Yes this is real and no apparently it is not illegal in the US to be this creepy.
Before we all grab our pitchforks of moral indignation and torches of ‘This guy? REALLY?’, LeCasque claims that he is actually helping couples and their sex lives.
"I can understand how shallow that would seem, but when you’re going to be with somebody for 40 or 50 years, should you really resign yourself to a sex life that’s not satisfying," claims the Miami resident.
The 49-year-old has persuaded four women to have breast augmentations, including his current partner Victoria who went from a 26D to a 26K at his request.
Victoria was only too happy to go under the knife for her beau and while she claims that every woman has the right

Thanks to a genetic disorder, Dave Meniert doesn't know how long Pegasus will live but he's documenting every day they have togetherBy Sophie Tighe | #ICYMI – Tue, May 12, 2015 16:42 BST

But what do you do when the dog you’re adopting has serious health issues that left their brothers and sisters either deformed or dead?
If you’re filmmaker Dave Meinert and Pegasus, you document every day you get to spend together.
South African Dave rescued Pegasus as a 4-week old puppy from some backyard breeders.
Pegasus is a ‘double-merle’, which refers to the colour of her coat, but means that she is at a much higher risk of becoming deaf, blind or both.
“Rather than focus on the negative, I wanted a way to document her good days of good health and celebrate them,” Dave writes on Bored Panda.
“I set about taking a picture of her growing up every day not knowing how long it would last.”
The final video is an adorable time lapse of Pegasus on a treadmill, growing from a four-week old pup into a seven-month old dog.
“I still don’t know how long she is going to live,” writes Dave, “…but right now is pretty great.”

And today, for some very lucky trainer-wearers out there (you know who you are), is that very day.
Struck by the extra holes on the sides of their trainers, the clever people at Illumiseen launched a full-scale investigation into the anomoly and discovered that they're actually supposed to be used to keep your ankles firmly in place.
Labelled a "heel lock", the technique is supposed to guard trainer-wearers from blisters and heel injuries by, you guessed it, locking your heel firmly in place.
By forming some clever loops and on either side of the foot, runners and gym-goers can tighten their laces in a circular 'lock' to stop their feet rubbing against the back of their trainers.

You have to wonder how these ads make it past the ideas stage.
A Welsh bus company has been labeled sexist after unveiling an ad for a new service in Cardiff.
N.A.T Group emblazoned the back of its fleet of buses with a picture of a topless woman holding a sign saying: “Ride Me All Day For £3”
The ad sparked outrage on Twitter, with dozens of users pointing out how out of touch the company was.
