Mancat Monday

My Sharpie Dots

I've received a few comments and compliments about my Sharpie dots on my nose. Mommy used to call them beauty marks but the gorgeous Baby Patches (she has one too!) left a comment about my 'Sharpie' dots and Mommy really liked that. It is not completely unique because I've seen it a lot but Mommy says mine really work for me.



I have one on my nose and one on the cheek below. If you look closely, you'll see that they're joined in my nostril! (Biggify the picture to see into my nostril! Okay, maybe you just wanna take my word for it..)



One interesting bit of trivia is that when Mommy first got me, and was thinking of a perfect name for me, she considered calling me Lemmy after one of her favorite musicians in Motorhead. Apparently he has two dots on his face like me! She said the name didn't stick because Lemmy is not even slightly cute and my dots weren't as pronounced when I was a kitten. Besides, she thought the name Samson would complement Delilah very well.



Sometimes I try to look tough to make Mommy change my name to Lemmy - She says I'm still too cute.



The Ball Guy is an artist and one of the things he paints is pets (of course, Delilah and I are his favorite subjects!). When he painted me, he got the dots perfectly! He is a very talented man.

P.S. Have a great Memorial Day (for my U.S. friends)!

That is a lovely painting of you, he is very talented.
Your mum is right, you are much too cute to be a Lemmy.

Mishkat said...

We really love your "sharpie dots" - and we like the name Samson (although be careful about Delilah cutting your hair!)

That's a wonderful painting too - the ball guy did a great job!

I think the dots are just lovely and make you look cute.I have a black mark on my nose but it always makes my nose look dirty. Yours looks pretty.

Samson, your dots are very cute and you certainly don't look like a Lemmy to me! Angel has a dot on her nose too! And the Ball Guy is very talented - I'd like to see his paintings of Delilah too!

Yep. Your dots look drawn on with a sharpie. Mom's an ok potter, but she wishes she could paint like the ball guy. That painting is beautiful.
