A grey cat with shocked green eyes from Russia is the latest social media sensation.
Fedya, who has his own Instagram account — @Fedjakot — with 31,000 followers was found in his owners backyard in Rostov, according to British news agency SWNS.
Natalia Zhdanova says the kitty was only a week old and struggling to survive when she took him in, noticing the misaligned eyes created a permanently shocked expression.
“We’re not sure if it’s a genetic deformity or if he was dropped by his mum as a kitten,” Zhdanova told SWNS.
“Now he is much healthier. He is a very sweet, gentle, playful, and intelligent cat. He purrs very loudly.”
The kitty, who is now a year and nine months old, was nursed back to health with the help of a neighbour’s cat, named Handsome, who came over daily.
“Handsome cleaned and licked Fedya and became like a father figure to him,” Zhdanova told SWNS.
Zhdanova, who makes educational books for children in Rostov, added: “He is inseparable with Handsome. They are the best of friends.”
