Viral footage has emerged of a cat in China appearing to look 'permanently sad' due to its unique markings.
The moggie is seen in videos with two black spots above its eyes like having a pair of furrowed eyebrows.
Millions of Chinese web users have been amused by the cat's 'sad expression' after a woman spotted the animal on the street and shared the clips online
The cat has become an internet sensation after being discovered by a university student on the street in Shanghai.
The woman, known by her social media handle Xin, shared the footage on Chinese TikTok-like Douyin last Thursday.
The video has quickly amassed nearly two million views after web users are entertained by the cat's unique facial patterns.
One commenter wrote: 'What happened to you? Why are you looking so sad!'
Another one replied: 'Hahaha the cat is a real-life emoji!'
A third netizen said: 'This is hilarious. It reminds me of my headteacher who was always angry at me haha.'
Since the first video became viral, Ms Xin has frequently revisited the moggie, which is believed to be a stray cat.
Ms Xin said on her Douyin page that she could not bring the feline home because she already had a pet cat.
Another clip shows the university student bringing the moggie food and water while telling her followers that she would regularly come to check up on the animal.
It comes after another cat that looks permanently grumpy has amassed a huge social media following for his constant scowling expression.
Known as 'The Angry Cat' on Instagram, Juno from the US has gained more than 184,000 followers due to the excessive fur framing his face
