If the internet is good at one thing, it's turning quirky cats into full-blown cultural icons - just look at Grumpy Cat, Maru and Lil Bub. Now there's a new kitty making waves on the web with a wild look that's all his own.

Meet Atchoum ("Achoo" in French), a Quebec-based kitty whose overgrown whiskers and intense golden-eyed gaze are quickly propelling him to stardom.

Mewow.

Atchoum's distinctive Ewok-esque appearance didn't come about because he's neglected his grooming. As a page devoted to the furry cat points out, the cuddly kitty was born with a condition called hypertrichosis - also known as "werewolf syndrome" - which leads to excess hair growth.

Despite the fact that his not-so-coiffed fur may make him look a tad maniacal, Atchoum's owner, Nathalie, says that he's "loving" all the same.
