am the cat has become an internet hit thanks to his furr-owed brow and unfortunate hair markings
If the saying is to be believed Sam may have nine lives, but he has just one expression – worried.
The unusual fur markings, which make it appear as if he has eyebrows, have provoked much hilarity online from his many followers
The two black marks on his forehead give him a range of expressions that is wider than that of his feline friends, who usually reserve expressions of disdain for their owners.
Sam’s owner started the Instagram account which features almost 50 photos of the interestingly marked pet.
The photos instantly became popular on the account named, ‘samhaseyebrows,’ with his owner stating in the biography: ‘Sam This is Sam. He has eyebrows.’
The pictures of the cat quickly became an Internet sensation, spreading from Instagram to Twitter and Facebook.
Even Sam looks surprised by his new found fame.
But Sam looks less than impressed with his owner’s sense of humour. In fact, he looks a little worried.
Even while relaxing before bed, Sam cannot wipe the expression off his face.
Sam the cat clearly does not share his owner’s good sense of humour, and seems to find the whole affair rather… worrying.
The rare and unusual markings are caused by dark spots in his pure white fur
Quirky cats have long been an internet favourite.
In 2011, the web was flooded with pictures of people’s cats that ‘looked like Hitler’ thanks to their unusual fur markings.
Last year a bizarre trend for posting pictures of cat’s faces encased in bread emerged.
A Facebook group dedicated to dressing cats in bread, and promoted by blogs across the internet, earned more than 10,000 followers.
2012 also saw plans for the world’s first Internet Cat Video Film Festival, which featured home videos of cats doing ‘adorable activities.’
