Cute kitten sounds like he’s saying ‘Well hi!’ in a Southern accent, now he’s going viral

Don’t you wish our pets could talk to us? Many people have at some point looked at their cat or dog and wondered what they would say if they could, what their personality would be like.

Despite our best efforts to teach them, animals can’t quite grasp the English language… except sometimes, it seems like they pick up a phrase or two.

Like one cute kitten, who’s now going viral for his uncanny ability to “talk” like a little Southern gentleman.

An 8-year-old tabby named Gambino Bambino has his own Instagram and TikTok pages, but he became a true internet sensation after one video was posted in which the cat seems to say “Well hi!” in a thick Southern accent.

Check it out and see if you can hear it:

The internet agrees—it sounds just like he’s talking. Comments have been pouring in from fans who say they can’t stop watching the video.
