This Curly Cat Named Chirico Always Looks Like She’s Judging People

There is a cat named Chirico who always seems to be judging the humans around her. Cats can be sweet pets, but there are cats that have a maniacal look on their faces and always seem to be thinking bad thoughts about you. 

This cat is located in Japan and has recently managed to go viral. One of the reasons behind her internet fame is that she is a Selkirk rex that is white and has long hair. She has a very unusual appearance, and everyone seems to love it. She has also become famous for the face she makes to the camera. Her breed, Selkirk rex, is a relatively new cat breed. It is treasured for its lovely, curly fur that gives these cats a unique look. Little Chirico has an especially unique look with her comical facial expressions. This cat is also great to cuddle with its long curls and soft fur.

The curly fur happened naturally because of a gene mutation that was discovered back in 1987. The entire breed may have come from one cat. This cat was born in a Montana shelter and was named Miss DePesto. A breeder adopted the little cat and found out that the curly fur gene was a dominant one. That would allow her to breed it with other cats and have litters that had curly hair. And thus, a new cat breed was born.

There are other cat breeds that have curly fur, but only the Selkirk rex has a curly gene that is dominant. That dominance makes these cats doubly special. This allows for more breeding that creates more of the breed as well as allowing for cross breeding to keep the breed healthier. With outside genes being bred into this cat breed, the gene pool stays diverse and healthy. 

Perhaps the best thing about the Selkirk rex is that these cats are cuddly and cute and have great personalities. When the newborn kittens in these litters want to cuddle and snuggle, the breeder knows that those cats are Selkirk rexes. The tiny kittens are adorable as their curly fur starts becoming apparent as they grow. 

So, why are their faces so moody? It’s one of life’s great mysteries that such a sweet and gentle breed should have a face that stares daggers at her humans. Chirico is reported to be a sweet cat with a judgemental face who loves to eat strawberries.  She even has her own Instagram account. And with a face like that, is it any wonder? So many people around the world have loved her pictures that it has shot her to fame in a short time. She deserves lots of strawberries! Would you want to cuddle with this adorable cat? With the Selkirk rex breed getting larger and larger, it may just be a matter of time until you can have one of these adorable kitties of your own.

A Koala Mother Babysits Three Joeys

The parents who have several young children at home often talk about the challenges that they face. Caring for even one very young child is certainly difficult. Having three kids like this just multiplies all of the associated obstacles. Strangely enough, many animal parents don’t quite seem to have the exact same issues. Then again, it’s possible that koala parents might have some of the same problems. 

Very young children tend to squirm and kick whenever they’re held. Parents who have twins sometimes have a difficult time holding both of the kids at once for that reason. They might get used to it, but it still might pose a lot of challenges physically. These situations are even tougher on the parents who actually have triplets. There are koala mothers who have to care for three joeys at once. A koala mother at the Billabong Zoo was in that situation recently. 

Human parents have certain inherently advantages. The fact that humans are comparatively tall certainly helps. Human infants and toddlers are very small compared to their parents. Many animal parents are not as fortunate, including the koala mother at Australia’s Billabong Zoo.

While these koala joeys are actually capable of climbing trees on their own, they seem to prefer resting on her back. While they’re still smaller than she is, the size difference is actually relatively modest. The mother koala seems to be only around three times the size of each individual joey. Since there are three of them, she seems to be at least somewhat overwhelmed. 

The koala joeys can’t seem to sit still, and all four of them seem as if they’re struggling to get comfortable and stay that way. They aren’t resting peacefully on the mother’s back. Instead, they’re constantly shifting and stepping on her. As this is happening, she’s still trying to hold onto the tree. They almost look as if they’re scratching her at times, which is enough to make anyone feel sorry for the mother koala.

It’s an entertainingly adorable image, but the mother koala still seems to be struggling to keep up with all of these joeys. She’s being remarkably patient, especially when people consider the situation overall. These koala joeys were not actually hers. She was just looking after them.

This sort of thing might surprise a lot of people, since koalas are not especially social animals. In fact, plenty of relatively unsocial animals will care for babies that aren’t theirs. They’ll still have the caregiver instinct, which can be helpful in a zoo environment. 

Koala joeys are actually very strongly connected to their parents emotionally. They spend months in pouches, and aren’t even remotely independent for a full year. It takes them even more time to become truly independent, and they’re still very attached to their parents from that point onward. This koala is not actually their mother, but they have the same sort of bonding instinct that her actual children would have. She’s acting as their mother, and that appears to be good enough for the joeys. 

Even though they could spend time on the tree alone, many of them are not going to want to do so. Koalas are generally very inactive animals. The mother koala in particular just seems to want to rest, and the joeys are not making that easy. Still, as energetic as they are, the joeys still settle down some of the time. 

It almost looks as if all four of them are going to fall any second. Still, all koalas are adapted to this sort of situation, and they’re astonishingly good at staying on trees.
