"1evilidiot" shared a photo of this long-haired creature. His post gained more than 23,000 likes and left many on the Internet puzzled and disagreeing. The poster revealed it was actually a cat named Atchoum who has hypertrichosis, a condition that causes excessive hair growth.
Atchoum is a Persian cat who lives in Quebec, Canada, and purrs "with a French accent."
"Some people say my wild furs and intense amber eyes make me look like a dog, an owl, a mad scientist, a Gremlin, Lorax or the Grinch but I'm happy to be me," Atchoum's biography page states.
Atchoum has a large following on Instagram and is the star of a children's book.
