Nor me…until now. It is a medical condition causing the hair to grow long and wild – a bad hair day of the worst kind.
Here she is, Moony, the little cutie with Werewolf Syndrome. She lives in Canada with her human, Luc Michaud. She is a rescue cat. Actually Luc rescued her. She was abandoned and left in a cat box outside the apartments where he lives and works (Luc is a janitor).
Luc tried hard to find the owner without success. He feel in love with Moony and adopted her even though he had no plans to adopt a cat. I can see the attraction. She is adorable.
She has yellow eyes and wild, wiry fur. I think she should become one of the gang of celebrity cats. No, on second thoughts, I hope not because that would be exploitative in my book.
Werewolf Syndrome is a rare hormonal disorder I am told. You won’t find it in the usual feline medical books.
Personally I don’t like the way Luc has died Moony’s hair pink. Do you? He has also given her a lion cut as shown in one of the photos. Perhaps he had to for medical reasons.
Moony needs some special maintenance to make sure her extra long and wiry hair does not cause health problems. The hair cat get into her eyes and nose.
Also Moony appears to be a Persian and flat faced. That will of itself mean that Luc has to watch out for breathing problems and tear duct overflow although this is not mentioned in the source article.
Moony has one of those appearances which polarises people. I am like Luc, I find her attractive and very cute. Others will think she is ugly and bizarre.
What do you think?
