Something to really get grumpy about! Meet Garfi, a ferocious looking (yet adorable) feline that is storming onto Grumpy Cat's territory. The fluffy orange Persian cat with the menacing expression is the latest pet to go viral thanks to his owners.

Garfi resides in Turkey and first received attention after a woman named Ms. Ozkok (via Daily Mail) was persuaded by her son to post pictures of him on a Flickr album.

"My son wanted me to open an account for photos of our cat, Garfi. It's the reason to join Flickr," the account description says. "However I am glad to join. Nice to meet you."

The page shows Garfi in a variety of hilarious scenarios and costumes. Some of the best include him dressed up as Santa Claus, wearing a tie, donning a cute flowered headband, and getting drenched in soapy suds while taking a bath.

Garfi has his own Facebook and Twitter page, but is, at the moment, far from Grumpy Cat's status. Grumpy Cat became an Internet sensation after her owner Tabatha Bundesen's brother Bryan posted a pic of her to Reddit back in September 2012. She's since released two books and is starring in Lifetime's upcoming live-action movie Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever. It was announced last month that acerbic Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza would be voicing the feline celebrity.
