Writing in an Instagram Q&A, Pisco’s owner explained the British shorthair used to be skittish but has become more tactile in time.
‘When we first got Pisco he wasn’t the cuddle bear he is right now,’ she posted. ‘He was very skittish and wouldn’t want us to hold him or touch him at all.
‘But every day we show him it’s okay and we wouldn’t force him to cuddle or grab him. Soon he became a lot more confident and started to get curious.
‘And now he’s a super teddy bear and loves to cuddle.’
Instagram users can’t get enough of Pisco and even called for merchandise.
