The 21-year-old singer posted two selfies to Instagram with the kitty on Friday and captioned them, “meet poseidon.” Poseidon is a perfect name for a royal Disney mer-cat, because while it’s vaguely mermaid related, it’s not IP (that would be the mer-daddy King Triton).

New celebrity pet dropped! Chloe commented on the kitty reveal, “the baby angel 😭😭 he needs to hurry and meet his aunty 😂🥰🥰.” Wasted opportunity not naming him Pusseidon, though. Professional mermaid. Literal professional mermaid Halle Bailey, who is playing Ariel in the upcoming live action Disney remake of The Little Mermaid, has adopted a very adorable cat and named it after the God-Fish-Man of the great mythical ocean deep. It’s yet another example of the two strong and distinct Insta-identities sisters Halle and Chloe Bailey have established since splitting into their own separate accounts earlier this year, with wholesome kitten-posting just being extremely on-brand for the Disney princess singer.
