On Instagram, there are videos of Vivo shaking his long fur in slow motion, followed by a fierce gaze that some interpreted as disapproval. A user on Reddit even claimed that if there was a royal bloodline for domestic cats, Vivo would be their king. Cole Thurman on Instagram expressed the desire to follow this regal animal into battle, while another person shared that after Vivo meowed only once, every female cat within a ten-mile radius mysteriously became pregnant. Someone else compared him to a character straight out of a CATS dress rehearsal. However, some users found his intense demeanor a bit overwhelming, feeling guilty when he looked at them on Facebook. Interestingly, the name “Vivo” translates to “alive” in Spanish and “I live” in Latin, which many online users found fitting. Due to the appearance of his fur, Vivo is categorized as a “black smoke Maine Coon.”

According to State Symbol USA, they are recognized as one of the oldest natural breeds in North America, having been established over a century ago. In 1985, the breed gained recognition as the State animal for Maine, as it is highly admired for its ability to survive the harsh winters in the region. There are various theories surrounding the origins of these pets. Some suggest that they may be descendants of Marie Antoinette’s long-haired cats, while others believe that they were the seafaring companions of a sailor named ‘Coon’ who arrived in Maine in the 1700s and mated with local cats, as stated by PetFinder. According to the same source, many believe that these cats are a combination of short-haired domestic cats and long-haired cats brought to America by New England seamen and possibly even the Vikings. In terms of size, male cats of this breed typically range from 13 to 18 pounds, with some individuals even reaching up to 25 pounds. Conversely, females tend to be smaller, weighing between 9 and 12 pounds. It is important to note that these cats reach their full size between the ages of three to five.
There have been observations about Vivo resembling a member of the noble lineage, suggesting that his pictures might showcase a Zoolander-like ‘blue steel’ expression and so forth.
Another person made a lighthearted comment, suggesting that the cat’s expression appeared seductive. They jokingly added, “Vivo has only emitted a single meow so far.”
The unexpected fertilization of each female feline within a radius of ten miles quickly ensued.
