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.”
