Sudden Popularity for Sam, a Cat With Worried-Looking Eyebrows

Japanese netizens fall in love with cat with 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.

    I remember rading a newspaper article where a sheep was born with a human face in some middle-eastern country (someone desired the forbidden warm and soft flesh of the sheep-persuasion). Maybe…just maybe…a few generations back…

    His eyes are piercing me!

    Lucky his owners are good photographers as well. :)

  • Cinimod

    Maybe he’s just concerned that there are so many used tissues lying around the apartment…

  • EightNineBall

    He looks so serious. Yet somehow, so welcoming.
