Voucher. All cats are beautiful, but there are some that are… well, special. His name is Wilfred, and he is a Persian who has had the misfortune to be born with averted eyes and with his fangs protruding from his mouth.
He's from the UK, and is considered the ugliest cat in the world, but thanks to the photos and videos that his human has been uploading to Instagram, he has become very popular all over the Internet.
When did you start to become famous?

The whole story of Wilfred begins when his person, Michael Rapaport, records the feline peacefully enjoying being in the backyard of his house ... watching another cat found lying on a window ledge. It quickly went viral, so we had and still have the opportunity to be entertained by Rapaport's great sense of humor.
In fact, today it has 996.000 followers on Instagram and he has created a shop where he sells T-shirts, mugs, etc. with the hairy face.
So is it ugly or not?
Well. For some, it is considered the ugliest cat in the world. What's more, if you Google that one of the first results it shows you is precisely Wilfred. Although, if I tell you the truth, I am one of those who think that there is no cat that is ugly. It does have a curious anatomy, but from there to label it as ugly ... there is a huge difference.
What is clear is that his human is very proud of him, which is what ultimately matters. It has made him a famous cat, getting more and more people to appreciate the feline.
If everyone who lives with cats (or any other animal) cared for their animals, surely we would live in a better world.
