CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A grouchy feline dubbed the “world’s worst cat” is quickly becoming the world’s most popular, as people vie to adopt her and media outlets from around the world compete for interviews.

Stories of Perdita and her perpetual grumpiness became a social media hit last week, after Mitchell County Animal Rescue in western N.C. detailed her shelter antics in a blunt Facebook post that has generated 5,700 comments and nearly 9,000 shares as of Monday morning.

Perdita’s stranger habits include “jump scaring” people, slapping anyone who tries to pet her, and “staring into your soul until you feel as if you may never be cheerful again,” said the tongue-in-cheek post.
