This Is What Happens When A Friend Takes Your Cat To The Groomer

We've seen so many epically bad pet-groomer mishaps recently that awful/adorable haircuts are almost a new genre of news coverage. There was the dad who didn't speak Mandarin and accidentally got his shepherd mix shaved like a poodle; another dad who gave the dog an "awesome" haircut; and the mom who cut her poodle's hair like Justin Timberlake in the '90s.

The latest victim of adorableness is a fluffy Persian cat named Jin Jin who, quite frankly, now looks like a Chihuahua wearing a cat mask.

Jin Jin's owner, Xie Quian Quian, told The Dodo that she only takes the cat to the groomer occasionally for a "lion" haircut that helps her kitty stay cooler in the warm months. But after entrusting this particular visit to the groomers to a friend, kitty's new do became a do-saster.

LOLS: CAT OWNER IN THE DOG HOUSE AFTER AMAZON PURCHASE

When Xie picked up Jin Jin, she was shocked to see that not only had her instructions been misunderstood, but her cat now resembled a sneaky dog trying to disguise itself as a cat.

Xie and her boyfriend were upset at first, but quickly came to appreciate the look. Good thing this cute furball's hair grew back in a few weeks.
