Looks like a Cross Between Garfield and a Very Afraid Cat.
You’ve probably heard the term ‘scaredy cat’ but have you actually come across one in real life? This cat is now giving new meaning to the phrase ‘wide eyed’ and is the ultimate real life scaredy cat.
While many people are struggling to amass 1,000 followers on Instagram, Herman the Scaredy cat has effortlessly surpassed that figure by far thanks to his large eyes that are turning heads.
The five-month-old kitten can’t fully close his eyelids even when sleeping because his eyes are so huge he has an everlasting frightened expression. The exotic shorthair cat, who lives in Copenhagen, Denmark with his owner Shirley, is the latest internet sensation and is taking over internet ‘cutie’ throne.
Despite her scaredy look, Herman isn’t scared at all. In fact, he’s a perfectly healthy kitten with massively bulbous eyes that makes him adorably special. Even though he’s struggled to gain weight, Shirley says that she had to hand-feed him in the first weeks, a move that bore fruits now that the kitten is extremely comfortable around humans.
“Herman is not only special because of his strangely big eyes, but because he’s also funny and constantly wears a sweet look,” Shirley says on Herman’s Instagram.
