Unusually Hairy Cat With Piercing Eyes Causing A Stir On Social Media

If you had Dr. Seuss and Tim Burton combine their creative powers to dream up a cat, this would be it. Meet Atchoum, the young male Persian who's grabbing attention all over social media with his mesmerizing looks.

The furry feline gets his crazy hair from a condition called hypertrichosis, or "werewolf syndrome," which causes abnormal hair growth.

But in his case, it gives him his character and his 122,000 Instagram followers love it. And he's starting to get quite the following on Facebook as well.

So if you ever think you're having a bad hair day, his is worse -- but in the cutest way possible.
