Although the official Grumpy Cat may have sadly passed on, there might be another feline looking to take her spot.

Romeo the cat has a very similar resting b**** face, and much like the late Grumpy Cat, also has a super sweet nature.

He lives in New Zealand, with owner Rinsa Li, 29, and Casper, a six-year-old Samoyed pup.

Romeo and Casper have become best mates, and Rinsa shares pictures on Instagram of the pets cuddling up like the adorable odd couple they are.

The pair have gained a massive 38,000 followers on their joint Instagram account which highlights all of their fun, adventurous moments together.

Rinsa said: ‘I always wanted to get a cat but I was unsure how Casper would react to it; when my best friend got a cat I took Casper to meet him and it turned out he was very gentle and sweet so we decided to look for our dream cat.

‘Now, the pair can’t be apart from each other. When I first brought Romeo home, we separated them for almost a week but Casper was very curious.

‘Romeo was nervous and scared at first because Casper was so big and fluffy but Casper was so sweet; he would go up to Romeo and smell him and if Romeo got scared, he would gently move away.

‘Romeo is the king of the house but he always secretly follows Casper around seeking his attention; it feels like Romeo has a dog personality and Casper has a cat personality sometimes.’

Rinsa wants to make sure people don’t judge Romeo on his sour puss, saying: ‘Romeo looks grumpy but he is the sweetest cat I have ever met; he allows everyone to hold him and gives great cuddles.

‘We take them exploring on road trips and recently came back from a road trip with them which lasted for two weeks and we stayed in a camper van together.

‘It warms my heart so much to see them as siblings and I enjoy waking up to the both of them everyday; I can’t imagine a life without them.’
