Xherdan the Sphynx is dubbed the ‘world’s scariest cat’

Do you agree?

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder – and that’s certainly the case for the owner of this spectacularly creepy cat by the name of Xherdan.

Xherdan is a hairless Sphynx, and he’s been crowned the world’s scariest-looking cat.

But while that’s not a title most people would want for their non-fur baby, Xherdan’s owner Sandra Filippi has turned it into a positive – and helped Xherdan get quite the fanbase online.

“When he was a baby, he had wrinkles, but not so many,” Filippi said.

“As he grew up, they grew more – and he looks very special now.”

Xherdan isn’t Sandra’s only Sphynx – she has two others, as Sphynxes are apparently very social, so owning one is simply not enough.

“He’s a very lovely cat – and he’s such a beautiful baby,” Filippi said.

“And when people say that he looks like a caterpillar or a dumpling, that’s funny for me.”
