Video: World's Ugliest Cat, Ugly Bat Boy
by Mitch Marconi

The world's ugliest cat has a name and it it is Ugly Bat Boy. He is an 8-year-old cat with no hair on his wrinkled head or body, except for a dark, shaggy beard and mane.

To the staff at Exeter Veterinary Hospital in Stratham, N.H., where the cat spends the day lounging on the office computer, he's gorgeous.

"Ugly Bat Boy" -- "Uggs" for short -- is not a rare breed, but rather a genetic mystery owned by a veterinarian in Stratham. He arrived at the clinic as a gift to Dr. Stephen Bassett from the mother cat's owner.

Ugly Bat Boy was part of a litter of four kittens, that included a sibling sister that was just as bald. The sister cat got sick and Dr. Bassett would take her home for continuous care. The patient did not make it, but the veterinarian received the brother cat as a gift from the owner.

He looks a little like the Cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz and resembles the Chinese crested dog that keeps winning "ugliest dog" honors at U.S. dog shows.
