People with kotexes in a wad over this cat.
Check out the owner.
Look at some of the comments to see just how fucking stupid readers are. The cat is not unusual. The breed LOOKS like that. Plus, animals CAN NOT smile. Only humans can.
Alyson Kalhagen, from Green Bay, was contacted after posting pictures of her cat Pixel online, intending to show off his ‘beauty and refinement’.
The wide-eyed Cornish Rex with protruding fangs instead caused alarm and Kalhagen, 39, said she was soon bombarded with messages from people afraid of her cat, which has been likened to a ‘sleep paralysis demon’.
The mother-of-one said most people are just curious about two-year-old Pixel’s ‘unique looks’ but that some comments came from a ‘place of real fear and hesitation’.
One such message was from an exorcist who told Kalhagen that a demon was using her pet as a ‘puppet’ and instructing her to keep Pixel caged and pray ‘over and over’ in front of him to get the demon out.
‘I had a message from this person telling me that they were an ‘exorcist’ and Pixel had been ‘taken over by a demon that was controlling his face’.
‘I think he was trying to tell me that’s why my cat is making all of these crazy faces,’ Kalhagen said.
‘In that photo he’s got kind of a blank stare with his weird little grin on his face – like maybe the lights were on or no one was at home, or whoever was at home wasn’t up to any good.
‘All the time people say ‘this is the creepiest cat I’ve ever seen’, ‘my sleep paralysis demon has come to life’ and if they saw him in the middle of the night they’d have a heart attack and it would scare them to death.
‘People say all the time that he’s a ‘demon cat’ who ‘must be possessed’ and that the devil’s taken control of him. It’s kind of a recurring theme.
‘I think it’s pretty funny because I usually just say ‘imagine coming face to face when you’re trying to scoop the litter box’.’
Kalhagen seems to have ignored the exorcist’s unsolicited advice but admits that Pixel has left her ‘startled’ at times and that she has even opted not to upload some pictures of the cat, having deemed his facial expressions ‘too wild for public consumption’.
Despite his spooky looks, Pixel has a 12,000-strong social media following and has even won awards.
