BELGIUM (WSLS 10) - Photos of a  Bengal cat from Belgium have gone viral.

Meet Thor, the cat with an instagram page that has made him internet-famous with his photos. To date, Thor has over 29,000 followers on his account and that number is expected to rise.

The Wildcat Sanctuary says The Bengal cat breed resulted from cross breeding an Asian Leopard Cat  with a domestic cat.

The organization also reports that these cats are considered wild.

According to a report from Big Cat Rescue, about 21 U.S. states have laws banning the ownership of these cats due to their wild nature, but Virginia was not on the list.
