Wilfred the Chinchilla Persian is simultaneously the most adorable and the most horrifying creature you’ll ever lay your eyes on.
The internet fell in love with the scraggly white cat when comedian Michael Rapaport posted a video of the cat on Instagram. Horrified, he called out to his mother and warned her of the “weird fucking stray cat outside” threatening Lucy, the family pet.
“It looks like Grandma, the fucking thing!” he said in the video.
It turned out to be a dubbed version of the original video, which is surprisingly soothing without the panicked yelling. In the original, Wilfred peacefully basks in his owners’ backyard.
It appears that Wilfred loves the outdoors, and often ventures to the “bottom of the garden” even though he “knows that he is not allowed to go to the bottom of the garden.”
He does not enjoy climbing trees, though.
With his flat face, wide set bug eyes, and adorable underbite, Wilfred is now Instagram’s collective gremlin son, whom we all love and cherish.
So here’s a love letter to Wilfred, the “weird fucking cat” who captured all of our hearts.
