SAM THE CAT HAS EYEBROWS. EYEBROWS!

Say hello to Sam: a New York-based feline who looks more than a little concerned.

Two black markings in the stark white fur above his eyes create the illusion of eyebrows: and we can’t stop laughing at him.

Sam first came into his owner’s life as a stray; someone had dumped the animal in a cat carrier outside his apartment. Found hiding between some buildings, it took Sam’s owner nearly a week to coax the abandoned kitty out of hiding.

After several weeks of attempting to find Sam a home, it became clear that he had claimed his own space in the apartment, and his owner had grown attached to the new visitor’s temperament and adorable face. Sam became an official member of the household.

When his owner posted photos of Sam on Instagram, the animal’s following quickly grew to more than 34,000. His website is equally as engaging – the proceeds from which are donated to a non-profit, volunteer based animal shelter in Brooklyn.

    So cute – and what a lovely gesture that his owners donate $ from his website to an animal shelter!!

    What a lovely, feel-good story. And appearing on what is supposed to be international day for increasing awareness of the importance of spaying domestic animals. To that I would add, awarness of the result of giving licences to breed to so-called puppy farms, and allowing pets to be sold in pet shops and via the Internet. In Australia the RSPCA alone euthenazes 22,000 dogs and 50,000 cats a year. Healthy, lively animals like the little guy in this story. This is sad, and preventable. If Australians stopped buying pets and instead adopted from shelters, plus spayed their animals, unwanted animals would not have to die.

    I have only ever adopted any pets I have now or in the past and it’s a wonderful way to go.

    What an adorable little fellow and a wonderful story. If we all took better responsibility for our pets, there would be fewer unwanted animals in this world. I have 5 wonderful adopted pets, 2 dogs and 3 cats. and all have been spayed and neutered. All healthy, happy and spoilt.

    Our much-loved dog came from the RSPCA. He cost us $6,000, the price of the fences needed to go around our house! He’s been a happy, healthy part of our family for eight years.

    With those eyebrows he really should have been named Groucho. As in Marx :-)

    Well said Anarosa Berman – my sentiments exactly. So many beautiful animals and too many unwanted, and it is not their fault!! Too many greedy puppy and kitten “factories”, a lot who sell to pet shops or pretend they are “breeders” – save a precious life and adopt a rescue dog or cat who will give you a life time of gratitude and love!!

    Look!! The cat on this page looks almost exactly like him! :) One of the characteristics of the breed are markings only on their head and tail :) check out the breed, they’re super cool cats :)
