Cats come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from the fluffiest of furballs to short-hairs and bald cats. But did you know that werewolf cats exist?
Graciewolfcat, an Instagram account, recently shared a video of a kitten that their foster cat had. Because of her bald areas and unusual hair patterns, the kitten stood out among the others. A unusual natural mutation was present in the kitten when it was born. Lykoi, or Wolfcats, are cats with this mutation. The video has been seen over 23.5 million times and has received over 5 million likes.
This is the werewolf kitten that went viral on TikTok. Her name is Gracie
“I chose to foster two pregnant cats found at the same colony site. They had their babies six days apart, and after a week, the two mothers teamed up and began raising all twelve babies as one big family. They looked after one other’s children as if they were their own.”
“My greatest memory of Gracie is when she was a tiny bald baby, and I used to enjoy kissing her and inhaling her. She has a scent about her that makes me want to kiss her. I still catch a whiff of her old newborn perfume now and then, which I adore. It’s most likely one of those strange mom things, haha. I want to kiss her, but she pushes my face away. I’m enamored with her big, lovely eyes!”
“I have one of her mums, which I do not believe is her bio mom,” the owner said of the other animals she has. I believe her biological mother was the black woman who, sadly, became ill and died a few months ago. I also have my tiny dachshund, who is 14 years old! They’re in love with one other and get along swimmingly!”
