Meet Moony Strangecat a Unique Cat Because She Has a Hormonal Condition Known as Hypertrichosis

Her name is Moony Strangecat, and with one look you will understand why she has that name. The reality is that Moony is a rather unique cat because she has a hormonal condition known as hypertrichosis.

So, her fur grown rather uncontrollably and it gives her that signature “strange” look.

Hypertrichosis is also referred to as “werewolf syndrome, ” and it means that her coat does require a lot of care and maintenance.

If she isn’t groomed regularly, her hair will become matted and dirty.

We all know that cats spend a lot of time grooming themselves, but Moony Strangecat needs help with all her fur! There is no way a cat can take care of all of that fluff!

Moony is a regular cat despite her long fur, she likes to frolic, sit in the sun, nap, and head pets. Being outdoors is one of her top three activities!

Happily, Moony has a groomer that she has been going to since she was a kitten, so she is in good, capable hands.

Moony’s looks may scare people or think that a creature has escaped from Hogwarts – but, she is just a loving cat – a true one-of-a-kind!

In fact, Moony is one of only two cats to have ever been diagnosed with hypertrichosis.

The other cat is Atchoum
