Cairo isn’t just a place in Egypt.
It’s the name of Macklemore’s cat – and by the looks of things, the singer adores his pretty kitty just as much as the ancient Egyptians loved their feline friends.
The female tabby has her own Instagram page, which is filled with photos of her doing the most paw-dorable things, like sleeping, cuddling with dad, more sleeping and stealing dad’s bling (clearly, she has expensive taste).
We’re not entirely surprised that Macklemore has fallen under this little lady’s spell. Signs of a feline love affair first surfaced last year, when a silly video titled “How to Hold a Cat” hit the Internet, featuring the “Thrift Shop” rapper demonstrating the proper way to hold a very fluffy (and very unamused) feline.
In May, he formally introduced his new addition in an Instagram photo with a caption that read: “Best decision I’ve made in a long time … Everyone meet Cairo.”
Behold, our favorite shots of Queen Cairo:
