Famous Feline Looks Like a Real-Life Cartoon Character

A 4-year-old cat named Fedya has become a social media sensation, thanks to his funny — permanently startled — look. When Fedya’s owner, Natalya Zhdanova, found him in her backyard in 2020, she had no idea he would one day becoming a social media star with over 300,000 followers. At the time, she wasn’t even sure he would survive. He had been born with a coordination issue and struggled to move around, but as he grew his condition improved. Before long, he began acting like a normal cat, although he didn’t really look like one. Natalya said she didn’t notice his unusual looks, but her friends seemed amused by Fedya’s startled appearance. She began posting pictures of the unusual feline on social media and the rest, as they say, is history. It’s unclear why Fedya has this unusual facial expression all the time, but his owner suspects that it's due to some genetic defect or the result of physical trauma. Whatever it is, it doesn’t seem to bother the feline at all. It’s what makes him special, and the main reason for his social media success.
