It’s not all that rare for animals to have weird markings on their fur and this cat, Daisy, who lives in a shelter in Sydney has a very unfortunate one. The unique face marking has made it very difficult for her to find a forever home.
Daisy has a unique face markings that has gone viral
An animal rescue team called The Mini Kitty Commune and posted about the cat who is ready for adoption.
It was quite obvious that the cat’s face looks rather explicit, which is probably what prompted this adorable 9-year-old feline to go viral. The beautiful ragdoll cat has white and grey fur with a distinctive brown phallic shape across her face which ends just at the tip of her nose.
People couldn’t ignore her what the distinctive shape on her face resembles
When asked how did Daisy ended up at their shelter, The Mini Kitty Commune team member, Derek, said: “Daisy and her sister were part of an amazing rescue earlier in August. We get contacted a lot by people who’s parents have passed away and the will/estate didn’t have a provision for their cats. We even set up a bequest program for it as it happens when it’s least expected. In this instance, the two cats were very lucky that one of the family was able to go back to the house every day and feed them after Grandmother passed away. We rehome as many cats as we can, and we had a really good run of adoptions in August (Finally!! More on that later) and immediately we had the space we contacted the caregivers for Daisy and said they could bring them in. They were here the next day at our vets (we vet everything back through Abbotsbury Vet Clinic ) and both were really unhappy. It happens, they get depressed with all the change and they stop eating, so it was touch and go for a while. That’s when we noticed the facial markings “Hey, guys, you probably want to see this cats face” (insert various jokes) We had them both on fluids and after a week they went into our foster care program. The family were wonderful and made a donation to us to cover the costs that were coming from the vet work and that covered the costs and did well. Purebred cats move very quickly for the wrong reasons and we had a lot of inquiries for her. But as there was 2 of them so it was harder to find a home early… until the photo’s started going up and getting noticed.”
While the explicit marking on Daisy’s face pushed away some, the attention she received eventually helped her find a great home. “We are happy to say that she is in a trial adoption with her sister right now! A wonderful lady called Amy who has been a follower of the MKC for ages took them both in and is giving them the right amount of time and focus to make them a family again, ” Derek said.
Derek said, that it’s the first time he and his team encounter such a unique cat. “We’ve had a lot of Kitlers (cats that look like Hitler) and lots of cow cats (cats with cow prints)…but a d**kface cat? Unique! Everyone was asking about her and sometimes it just sticks well. I mean, we’re a rescue group with ChairmanMeow as our mascot and a team of Communist Cats. So we are thinking a new character may be on the way. How does Inspector Phallus sound? Nope, maybe not,” he said.
But after Daisy went viral so many people have fallen in love with the cat, that they even started to argue about what the distinctive shape actually resembles.
There are some that say it looks like an angel, and others say they can clearly see the heart shape. However, most people couldn’t ignore the obvious – the cat deserves a loving home no matter how she looks!
