When it comes to our pets and their fur, we usually only pay attention after they’ve shed all over our clothes and furniture, or when it’s time for them to take a trip to the groomers for a trim.
But the unique cats and dogs below, with their incredible fur patterns, are impossible to ignore. Whether the markings resemble a silly image or flow into a stunning design, you just can’t take your eyes off of them.
I especially love the critters whose fur forms nearly perfect heart shapes, something my own cat has — those three little spots on her nose totally melted my heart when I first saw her at the animal shelter.
Do you have any pets with unusual or beautiful markings on their fur? Know someone with their own patterned pet?

1. Seeing Double
He wears his shadow on his sleeve.
2. Swirly Girl
Staring at this sweet cat’s fur for too long might make you dizzy.
3. Swashbuckling Tail
This kitten wields a mighty sword on his back.
4. Uneven Eyebrows
This pup totally rocks the asymmetrical look, though.
5. Spotted Snout
The nearly perfect circles almost make it look like a paw print on her face!
6. Lovely Legs
I like how this unique heart marking only works when she’s got her feet together like that.
Maybe he fell for the old shoe-polish-on-binoculars trick?
8. Black Socks
I thought they dipped her in dye at first, but these stunning paws are all-natural!
9. Constantly Surprised
Whether or not she’s actually shocked, this little cutie always has a jaw-dropping look of awe thanks to her chin marking.
10. Mr. Mustache
This is definitely the most dapper dog you will ever see.
11. Puppy Love
That heart couldn’t be more perfect if his owners painted it on!
12. Mirror, Mirror
These swooping shapes definitely make this feline the fairest of them all.
