Of course, cats don’t turn into memes if they’re just any old house felines. They have to be physically “special” in some way — Tardar is grumpy because he has feline dwarfism and an underbite, while Lil Bub is also a dwarf, albeit one that has extra fingers, no teeth and a stubby lower jaw.

As you can see above, Jarvis’ lil’ wheel of fortune landed on “crossed eyes.” Roll out the red carpet, folks — a kitty superstar is on the horizon.
According to the Daily Mail, little Jarvis P.

After his rescue and a stint in an animal shelter, Jarvis was eventually taken in by his current owner, Daria Kelly. Ka-ching. Now 5 years old, Jarvis is taking the internet by storm! … Okay, more like a light sprinkling, but whatever.
