We are used to cats being mellow furry balls staring at us with angelic eyes full of innocence. But Chirico the Japanese cat-fluencer is nothing of the sort. At first glance, she does resemble a plush teddy bear you could never resist cuddling. That’s because she is a Selkirk Rex, a unique breed known for their wavy fur and photogenic look.

But as soon as you set your eyes on her facial expression, you'll notice a sort of wolf in sheep’s clothing. ‘Cause Chirico is one heck of an angry dudette.

A rising star on Instagram, Chirico now has 1,495 followers whom she entertains with fun little updates from her daily life. From celebrating her b-day to having a bath, this gurl is everything but impressed. And I feel her.

Bored Panda reached out to Chirico's owner, who said the angry gurl lives in Tokyo and she’s three years old. The owner also said her favorite thing is strawberries, which you can clearly see from the multiple posts like this one showing the Japanese Selkirk Rex savoring red berries.

The owner assured us that despite Chirico’s permanently unimpressed face, she is not an angry cat. “She is a gentle cat with many different facial expressions.” It turns out, Chirico's go-to expression is the yawning face.

Making its first appearance in Montana in 1987, the Selkirk Rex cat breed is a relatively new breed, but has already gained a cult-like status with people adoring it for its beautiful wavy fur. The unusual fur is a result of a natural mutation found in a litter of kittens from a blue tortoiseshell cat and a white cat.

According to the Cat Fancier’s Association, Selkirk Rexes come in two fur lengths—short and long. “The care of the two different lengths of coats is similar to that of either a short or longhair coat. Brushing, in either case, should not be as frequent if the curly coat is to be maintained.”

As you can imagine, special hair treatments also help in keeping their hair luscious. The Association suggests that shampoos “that do not coat the hair, but leave the cat feeling silky and clean, are the best to allow the hairs to curl.”

According to Pet Finder, Newman from the Noface Cattery in Livington, Montana was surprised to realize DePesto was carrying “the dominant curly-coat gene, but also the recessive gene for long hair.” It happened because both parents possessed at least one copy of the long hair gene to produce long-haired offspring.

Her fur looks like she went through the washing machine and was left to air dry. Cute
