Call me Icarus
I came across this picture while looking for pictures of cats with curly whiskers. It seems my son’s new kitten is developing curly whiskers and I was trying to imagine what that might look like.
My first thought was that some quiller had been practicing on this poor kitty’s whiskers, perhaps just to create a funny photo. But no, it turns out this little guy was rescued from a burning building.
The image was posted on Imgur two years ago, and the comments that follow are worth reading. Some examples:
“Lives left = 8”
“Retrocat regrets ’80s perm”
“‘That did not go as planned'”
“Looks like a french cartoon villain. Zut Alors!”
“The most interesting cat in the world.”
“Multiple handle bar mustaches…engage monocle!”
“‘I’ll be damned if that beautician gets a tip!'”
“Am I the only who thinks this cat looks like Captain Hook?”
