Is This a Cat? Or is It A Dog? What Do YOU Think?

A user on Twitter has posted a photo which has viewers all over the world wondering if the creature featured is a cat or a dog. The long-haired animal is cat-sized, but just so happens to look much like a dog. And if you look very closely, there may also be a little raccoon in there, too.


The animal in the photo is a cat. He is a Persian and his name is Atchoum. He lives in Quebec, Canada.


You see, Atchoum has a condition which is called hypertrichosis and it causes extra hair growth, leading to the cat’s unusual dog-like appearance.


Want to see more of Atchoum? Well, he has his very own website.

The cat’s biography states, “Some people say my wild furs and intense amber eyes make me look like a dog, an owl, a mad scientist, a Gremlin, Lorax or the Grinch but I’m happy to be me.”
