How Atchoum, the Unusually Furry Feline, Became Famous

How Atchoum, the Unusually Furry Feline, Became an Online Star

Atchoum the cat now has tens of thousands of Instagram followers, and his owner, Nathalie Côté, had a feeling he'd be an Internet sensation.

Atchoum's rise to fame began with a dare from Côté's kids to post a photo of the unusually hairy Persian kitty on Facebook. The kids thought that no more than 100 people would like the snap, but mom knew he would make a splash.

"Atchoum was so cute!" Côté tells PEOPLE. She received the feline as a gift last July from a coworker at the Quebec veterinary hospital where she works as a groomer. "Differences are beautiful in living things."

Atchoum, who was born with hypertrichosis (a rare condition that causes excess hair), is otherwise healthy, says Côté – but he requires a lot of care, including regular brushing to prevent matting of his hirsute coat.

Meet Atchoum: The Internet's Newest – and Furriest – Cat Sensation

Long hair, don't care! That should be this trending fluffball's motto.

Atchoum, which means sneezy in French, is a furry feline (and potentially part Muppet) from Quebec, Canada, who is quickly earning fans online, according to Mashable.

The 9-month-old cat has a condition called hypertrichosis, which occurs in humans and animals. Hypertrichosis causes excessive hair growth. Most of Atchoum's extra fur sprouts out of his face, giving him a unique appearance that his owners have kindly chosen to capture on Facebook and Instagram.
