I am not one whose mind goes into the gutter easily, and I will never make fun of a cat for a marking in which they cannot control. For Daisy the stunning nine-year-old Ragdoll cat out of Sydney, Australia, she made headlines and turned millions of heads around the world for her um, ahem, interesting facial marking.
The Mini Kitty Commune of Australia is giving her a soft place to land until she finds her furever home, and they referred to her facial marking as “unfortunate” to try and keep things PC when sharing her plight with the cat lovers of the world.
To me, it’s sort of like when you stare up at the clouds and imagine you see things that aren’t really there—or are they? Obviously Daisy’s facial marking has garnered her loads of attention, and some not so nice—I’m talking to you, misogynistic men! We get it, you think you’re so funny. 🙄
Regardless of the people who quickly had their minds in the gutter over what some are referring to as her “dickface” facial marking, at least it’s doing some good by getting Daisy’s need for a loving home out there in the world. I know I speak not only for myself when I say that Daisy is simply gorgeous and any cat lover would be lucky to have her!
“Unfortunate face markings? More like purrfect.” — says one kind commenter to their Facebook page.
The good people at Mini Kitty Commune are working hard to ensure that Daisy has the furever home that she deserves. And we can tell that these dedicated cat lovers are people who truly care about the feline kind!

*UPDATE OCTOBER 2019*
After Daisy’s unique facial marking went viral, more and more alternatives to the “design” were shared.
Comments from all across social media came flooding in.
“Her forehead marking actually resembles a Vaishnava tilak, the marking of a devotee of Vishnu. A very auspicious sign in Hindu culture.” ~ Miikka Hietanen
“The first thing I saw was an angel standing with wings spread. She’s beautiful. I’d adopt her immediately.” ~ Megan Schmidt
“Looks like an elongated love heart. Silly people who think any sweet natured cat could have unfortunate markings 😊. It might be considered “powerful” in some ancient cultures! A very lucky cat!” ~ Ginger Rogers
“I read the article about Daisy Ragdoll. I really don’t see [that] on her face–I see a fox. A beautiful fox.” ~ Dawn Feagan
“I do not think it looks like a Penis at all. With the Center mark between the Wings to me it looks like a Phoenix coming out of the ashes with it’s wings stretched toward the heavens, If I were in Australia I would adopt her in a second.” ~ Ron Johnson
However, for Daisy and Mollie, no one’s opinion matters one bit.
It doesn’t matter who has what facial marking or fur color or anything else.
As long as they are together. And that’s how they are going to stay. The trial adoption went as many expected–purrfectly. Congratulations to the happy family! We can imagine that all people see now, are the smiles on their faces.
Daisy isn’t the only cat with interesting markings, check out some others we found on the internet!
This tortie’s coat is super interesting, especially with her little headband a top her head…
And, of course, many cats have markings similar to one of the most evil men in history…
And this cat, those are some super cool facial markings!
This cutie looks like there’s a monkey on her back 24/7!
