Betty is a European short hair, grey and white tabby cat.
She, along with her sister Mia was adopted at around 10 weeks old by their owner from a litter of barn kittens.
And although Mia and Betty were both the same size when they initially got adopted, her owner soon discovered that Betty is what is called a “forever kitten”.
Forever kittens are cats that have dwarfism, which can be caused by a number of genetic conditions, but that ultimately stunts a kitten’s growth and can cause various health issues as they age.
This condition can vary depending on the individual cat.
Betty has a deformed spine, a small skull, and a few “mental quirks”, but that doesn’t stop her owner from knowing that Betty is the perfect little creature.
A cat with an attitude
Betty’s owner assures anyone concerned that her cat is not in pain, and that her grumpy appearance is all due to her markings.
You have to admit, her darling little face could have you convinced she was really very annoyed!
According to her owners, Betty often gets “upsetty”.
They have fun posting pictures and videos of her on social media, and even made a dedicated Facebook page for her titled Betty, the Angry Kitty Elf for all those wishing to keep up to date on her shenanigans.
Everyone loves a grumpy cat
Betty has gained quite a following online, with thousands of followers dedicating themselves to her.
One Reddit user pleads “Please, please tell Betty that I love her.”
Her grumpiness has even spawned its own subreddit called r/restingbettyface, and a number of memes put words to her annoyance.
Even though she has a hard demeanor, Betty has a soft center.
Although she’d probably be very displeased if we found that out!
If looks could kill, no one would be safe from Betty’s stare, it’s a good thing we get to admire her little angry face instead.
