Animals are simply amazing creatures. From their unique personalities to their striking appearances, they never cease to amaze us. One of the most fascinating aspects of animals is their fur markings and designs. Whether it's spots, stripes, or patches, these patterns make each animal distinctly beautiful. In this listicle, we'll be showcasing some of the cutest animals on the Internet, with unique fur markings and designs that are sure to make you go "awwww!"

Right from the black spots on the cheetah's golden fur to the black and white stripes on a zebra, the animal kingdom is full of beautiful designs on fur. However, what about the markings that aren't generic in nature, but a mutation instead? Like a cat that is half white, half black. Or a squirrel with a tricolored tail. Here's a fun fact for you: The fur of cats and dogs has only two pigments, black and white. All the other colors - browns, reds, grays - occur due to dilution, mutation, modifiers, or other genetic factors.

So let's take a look at these animals since their unique fur markings and designs are a testament to the beauty of the animal kingdom. Get ready to meow-mazed by the incredible paw-tterns and colors found in these furry friends. Sit back, relax and enjoy this cuteness overload!
