Herman the Scaredy Cat, A Sweet Kitten Whose Giant Eyes Give Him a Look of Eternal Fright

Herman the Scaredy Cat is an absolutely adorable exotic shorthair kitten whose giant oversized eyes give him the appearance of being eternally frightened, but in reality he’s very loving and social. Herman lives in Denmark with his human Shirley Nordenskiold.

I quickly realized that he was born special by having a somewhat peculiar look with his very big eyes. …He had that certain look of being surprised or scared all the time. …Herman is astonishingly social with humans. …When I move from room to room in my apartment, Herman is always following me around. You are never in doubt when Herman is not getting enough attention. He will either start meowing or tap me lightly with his paws.”
