Chirico is a 3-year-old aristocratic cat who lives in Tokyo, Japan. She became popular online after her owner started her Instagram account. Chirico’s “forever sullen” appearance doesn’t make her seem like a very sweet, affectionate, and friendly creature, but she’s actually a charmer in her own right.
Why does Chirico have that expression on her face? It’s because of her rare breed, the Selkirk Rex. In addition to the fact that the breed carries the curly coat gene, the structure of the muzzle of these cats makes them discontented in appearance. In fact, they are majestic and very cute creatures.
Cats of the Selkirk Rex breed have a calm, reserved nature. They are patient, obedient, friendly, and affectionate. These cats need the constant attention of the owner, are great with children, and quickly find common ground with other cats and even dogs.
