Cats: So graceful! So elegant! So composed!

And then there's Curious Zelda, a hyper-attentive tuxedo kitto with pupils LOCKED to the astonished emoji setting.

Plucked from a London shelter in 2014, the permanently-spooked shorthair has become an unlikely star on Twitter, where her doting human, Matt Taghioff, captions a steady stream of LOL-inducing photos with Haiku-like poems, witty cat-isms, and a bevy of puns that I'll be bookmarking for future use.

His creative wordsmithing has won Zelda an army of devoted followers — 44,000+ at last refresh — and, more recently, a spot on the microblogging platform's coveted Moments tab.

Embedded below then for your scrolling pleasure: A sampling of Zelda's very best tweets!

"Red Bull gives you strings."
