Meet the cat with the saddest face on Instagram. Luhu’s lachrymose facial expression has won him 76,000 Instagram followers, but owner Maggie Liu insists he’s actually “very friendly.” The Internet has decided that Luhu, a Beijing-based cat, is officially ‘the saddest cat in the world.’ Only a Nazi could hold back tears after seeing how sad Luhu is. Watch for yourself … but remember, we warned you!
Luhu the cat is sad. So sad in fact, she’s been dubbed the “saddest cat in the world” by the Internet. Luhu lives in Beijing with her human caregiver Maggie Liu and two older feline brothers, but experts say neither of these facts explain Luhu’s sadness.
This cat is like a furball of pure sorrow. Maggie claims that despite the perpetual look of misery on Luhu’s face, she’s actually a well-adjusted, active kitty … But that’s what you’d expect her to say.
To us however, it’s obvious something is wrong because no cat has ever looked this sad.
Luhu is now 3 years old and perfectly healthy, and he shares his Beijing home with two other tabby cats, his brothers Barher and Bardie, whom Liu describes as “very friendly cats that never fight.”
Liu started sharing photos of all three of her cats on Instagram, and she was surprised to see how quickly Luhu’s sad expression rocketed him to famous-feline status.
Luhu is a sweet tabby cat who constantly looks like she needs a serious pick-me-up. It just doesn’t get any cuter than a cat with a perpetually sad expression, folks. Luhu the cat is a gray tabby who lives in Beijing, China, with her brothers, Barher and Bardie.
A tabby is any domestic cat that has a coat featuring distinctive stripes, dots, lines or swirling patterns, usually together with a mark resembling an ‘M’ on its forehead. Tabbies are sometimes erroneously assumed to be a cat breed.

“I put my cats pics on Instagram just for fun, actually. I never [thought] about Luhu [getting] so popular like this.”
In the past few days, Liu has amassed more than 80,000 followers on the photo-sharing site, all thanks to her forlorn-looking feline.
“I did not have any plans for my cats so far,” she said. “I wish my cats keep healthy and live with me until they are gone.”
