Below, we bring you a translation of a blog that re-posted the photographs of Sam, along with netizen comments from Naver Matome and Ceron.jp, sites which compile the most popular topics on the internet in Japan.
Sudden Popularity for Sam, a Cat With Worried-Looking Eyebrows
Sam is a pure white cat, but for some reason he has black markings above his eyes that look like he’s frowning. Because they look like eyebrows, he always looks like he’s worried about something. Even if he’s not troubled at all, he looks as if he’s troubled. When Sam was posted on the smartphone photo upload site, Instagram, he attracted attention, and now people all over the world are looking at Sam’s troubled face.
People registered on Instagram with their smartphones can see new pictures of Sam on a daily basis:

I was struggling desperately not to laugh. I really regret opening the page on the train.
His eyebrows look like they’re drawn on! Are those real markings…? The pictures are cute but a bit surreal…(^^;
Too troubled www
Looks like the eyebrow cat is called ‘Sam’! Cute!
K-kawaii….Look at those eyebrows…!
Too cute (´・ω・｀)
He’s even funnier because of his eyes.
Such a sad expression.
When you see this you realise how important the shape of your eyebrows are.
Eyebrows? It seems like he really has these markings. His loveable expression is so cute!
This little guy’s going to be popular.
Maybe it’s just me, but he also seems to have a worried look in his eyes.
