World's Ugliest Cat Is Actually Pretty Cute

He's been billed as "The Ugliest Cat Alive", but I think that 8-year-old Ugly Bat Boy (Ugs for short) is actually pretty cute!

The unusual looking cat resides at a veterinarian's office in New Hampshire, where his favorite spot is lounging on top of a warm computer monitor. The vet and his staff believe that Ugs' condition, which leaves him bald with a scarf like scruff of fur on his chest, is a genetic mutation. He was tested and had none of the markers for a rex or sphynx, two breeds of (purposely) hairless cats.

Dr. Stephen Bassett, who runs Exeter Veterinary Hospital where Ugs lives told AOL News, "When he sees a camera, he pretty much poses. He's become quite the star."

I love him! He's the best of both worlds..I'd take him in an instant! I love him, I don't think he's ugly, and I certainly wouldn't call him "batboy"....he's regal, like a lion!
