Remember the ridiculously photogenic gecko? Well, it has just met its match. Nyankichi, a male tabby from Kagoshima, Japan, and his human have been traveling around the country, taking beautiful pictures along the way. As the numerous photos by the owner suggest, Nyankichi is such a photogenic cat that he should be model on the catwalk.

Cute cat walking in front of an erupting volcano? Check. Enjoying the beach? Double-check. It seems that Nyankichi, who's probably the most beautiful cat today, is physically unable to have a bad photo taken of him, no matter the setting. His adventures have earned the now-famous cat over 123,000 Facebook followers and even appearances on the TV and in magazines. That's what we call Internet famous! Scroll down to catch a glimpse of his trips and upvote your favorite cat photos.

Looks like the cat is the driver of a gondola, and feeling so thoughtful and melancholic.
