Special Containment Procedures: Due to the nature of SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties permanent containment is impossible. SCP-XXXX currently voluntarily inhabits Site-██ and has the freedom to traverse the facility. All attempts to attach any form of a tracking device to SCP-XXXX has failed as any matter attached to SCP-XXXX is left behind when it teleports. SCP-XXXX is to be monitored constantly via the use of the on-site surveillance systems to ensure that it remains in Site-██ In the event, SCP-XXXX's location is not known for a period exceeding five minutes MTF Eta-15 ("Social Graces") is to conduct a thorough search of Site-██ in order to locate SCP-XXXX. If SCP-XXXX is found to have left the site the closest civillian populations are to be monitored for any potential sitings of SCP-XXXX, members of MTF-Eta-15 ("Social Graces") are to be embedded in psychiatrist and psychologist offices within nearby civillian populations in order to identify potential instances of SCP-XXXX-1.

All humanoid and sapient SCP's have been relocated from Site-██ in order to avoid interaction with SCP-XXXX which could then lead to accidental neutralization. All personnel at Site-██ are to be briefed on SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties in order to minimize the risk of personnel loss. In the event personnel encounter SCP-XXXX, they are to greet SCP-XXXX formally with a "Hello" or similar form of greeting and salute SCP-XXXX with a "Goodbye" or similar form of salutation before exiting its vicinity. In the event, SCP-XXXX's sudden materialization startles a personnel member causing them to break the previously listed protocol they are to immediately apologize to SCP-XXXX and explain the reason for their transgression. In the event, SCP-XXXX dematerializes before the subject is able to apologize or the subjects apology is seen as unsatisfactory by SCP-XXXX the individual becomes an instance of SCP-XXXX-1. Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to report to the site director immediately after infection and can request euthanasia or prolonged psychological treatment in an attempt to slow SCP-XXXX's effects.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a misshapen sculpture of a feline head. SCP-XXXX is roughly 4 feet in length and is constructed entirely of a rusted wired endoskeleton covered in poster-painted paper mache. SCP-XXXX's appearance is perceived negatively by all who view it as it is most commonly referred to as "ugly" or "unpleasant", whether or not this perception is caused by a mild cognitohazard is uncertain.

SCP-XXXX possesses the ability to instantly transport itself to any location it desires, there are no known limits to SCP-XXXX's teleportation abilities. SCP-XXXX seems to bee attracted to locations frequented by individuals engaging in social interaction, commonly materializing amongst groups of people during casual conversion.

Upon materializing in a location SCP-XXXX will remain stationary and inert. SCP-XXXXX's secondary anomalous properties will only activate if a person in SCP-XXXX's vacinity engages in one of the following activities.

Any individuals who engage in the previously listed activities will become an instance of SCP-XXXX-1. Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 will become afflicted with a series of psychological symptoms which grow progressively worse over time.

Subjects will begin to experience bouts of low self esteem and self doubt. Symptoms initially start mild with subjects losing the ability to genuinly accept compliments while at the same time beginning to doubt their past and current accomplishments. Over time the subject's self esteem will continue to decline as the individual will begin to find faults with their physical appearance and/or personality even if they were perfectly content with said traits prior to their encounter with SCP-XXXX. Overtime subjects will begin to neglect their hygiene, health and personal responsibilities due to the belief that their "not worth the effort". Towards the end stages of infection subjects will begin to apologize profusely to every individual they encounter as they will see every action they make as well as their very existence as inherently bothersome or unnecessary. Within three weeks of entering this final stage 100% percent of SCP-XXXX-1 instances commit suicide. D-Class test subjects who were restrained to prevent self harm somehow managed to commit suicide by holding their breath until becoming hypoxic. All instances off SCP-XXXX-1 who commit suicide via this method state that "they are not worth the oxygen" before expiring. The use of amnestics and prolonged psychiatric therapy has proved to slow the progression of symptoms however there is currently no way to cure the affliction.

Recovery: SCP-XXXX was recovered from [REDACTED] Middle School in [REDACTED] Chicago Illanois. SCP-XXXX was brought to foundation attention when insergents within local law enforcement reported a sudden surge in suicide attempts amongst individuals who attended the school. This was confirmed to be an anomalous occurence when a student who was hospitalized and restrained after a failed suicide attempt managed to successfully commit suicide by holding their breath until the set in of hypoxia lead to expiration. Despite the attempts of medical professionals to sedate and intubate the subject, the process of which included the administration of general anesthesia the subject managed to continue to hold their breath.

A foundation investigation was launched which lead to the identification of SCP-XXXX as the primary anomoly as well as ██ instances of SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX was apprehended and placed under supervised containment while the scope of its anomalous properties could be investigated, while this investigation was taking place SCP-XXXX suddenly disappeared from its containment chamber and materialized in the Break Room on the 5th floor of Building ███.
