Chó is a very special cat: he's owned by a man named Lê Quốc Phong in Vietnam, according to Buzzfeed News. Phong has been dressing up Chó since he wandered into his life on a hot summer's day a few years ago. His name means "dog" in Vietnamese. Yes, he's Dog the Cat. Phong takes Chó out to show off his outfits, and takes especially funny pics of the kitty examining the local produce.
Chó's incredible fashion sense went viral when someone tweeted some pics of him in his fanciest costumes, going about his fish market business:
But he already had a lot of local fans. I mean, who wouldn't be a fan of this hilariously clad feline? I would like to buy a similar wardrobe for my very small dog, and walk it around the streets of New York or Vietnam, whatever. I'm sure people all around would be here for the cuteness and hilarity.
Also, I could definitely strive to change his name from his actual name to "Cat," so that he could be "cat the dog" and enjoy all the sarcasm and irony that this cat probably does on a regular basis.
Then he could post pictures on an Instagram account I would start just for him, saying things like "I'm cat the dog," and it would be cute and hilarious and maybe he could even get a job marketing something so I wouldn't have to work so hard. I mean, seriously. Look at this cat. Looks like it gets a lot of work done in a day.
Because check these lewks, hunny:
The Internet is obsessed:

Same!! Pretty sure the whole of Vietnam would at this point 😭😭😭— Phuong Le (@smallnartless) March 7, 2018
We all love Chó! But not as much as the ladies, apparently.
Hard to reconcile my love for Chó with my desire to see animals being spayed and neutered, but since he's in another country, let's let it go.
And just enjoy him for who he is:
