One Sweet Color Changing Kitty Cat

Bruce, a great name for a cat by the way, was born with the lovely gray fur. When the new baby kitty named Bruce opened his eyes, those eyes were a beautiful blue. Bruce's eyes did eventually change from blue to green, but that is to be expected, but no one expected Bruce's all-gray fur to change to all-black fur. Dark patches gradually started to appear on Bruce's soft gray fur. The dark patches increased in number, and those patches of dark became even darker. The once all-gray kitten named Bruce became the all-black cat named Bruce. Bruce changed from entirely-gray to entirely-black because he was born with fever coat. A kitten born with fever coat has a mother who was either sick or highly-stressed during pregnancy. Bruce's poor Mom did go through a really hard time when pregnant, and her struggle led to Bruce's coat gradually changing from gray to black. Bruce, now an all-black kitty cat, has a forever home with a family that adores him.
I'm Bruce the cat, the amazing, colour-changing kitten! This is the true story of how I changed from grey and blue to green and black. I was found on a footp...

Very interesting, I didn't know about fever coat before. But other than the changing fur color it doesn't affect the cat healthwise, does it?

No, a kitten that has fever coat does not suffer any ill effects, thank goodness.

@Corbin5 It's the first time that I hear about a fever coat. I wonder if there is something similar for the humans. The color of the hair changes from the early days to adult age.

@LadyDuck Humans may have something similar, but not sure about that. Yes, those of us who were blonde as babies and ended up with brown hair later in life just could be something similar to fever coat. Would need to research that.

Awww, so cute. That poor Mummy cat. Qyzy had a stripey tail as a kitten, but the stripes faded as he got older.

Our tuxedo kitten seems to have more white 'fur' appearing among his black. I am wondering if it would become a white cat eventually...

I love tuxedo kitty cats. They are the most beautiful, in my opinion. I hope your kitty does not change fur color one bit.

@Corbin5 I am so glad that you said so (re: tuxedo is beautiful). We had had a pretty orange and white cat before, a very good looking cat with a beautiful temperament (it followed me, a 10 YO kid, around, so I guess it must be a good cat ). This time, I thought I should choose differently and I chose this tuxedo instead of his older two brothers (all gingers, from mother to siblings). When the owner told me that everyone seemed to go for ginger cats, I was a bit worried, so I chose the last ginger of the lot. HOWEVER, that ginger kitten was very aggressive and had a real struggle trying to get out, while this tuxedo jumped into our arms and sat there contentedly. (He begged us if he could follow his ginger brother INTO the bag ). His fate was sealed from that, he followed us home and the ginger brother stayed back.) I have a suspicion the owner was a bit sad to see the only tuxedo of the lot gone.

I had a cat named Oodie. She had gray fur and green eyes. I never heard of Fever coat until now. Wow! Just as long as Bruce is happy and healthy, that's all that matters. He's so cute!

I wonder if it just happens naturally in dogs, but in cats, it takes something like fever coat to cause the change in color? I wonder if dogs are affected with fever coat? Oh shoot. Off to do more research.

I always think it is cute when puppies and kittens pads change color from pink to black.

Actually, it is fever coat. "Fever Coat is a condition that occurs when a pregnant cat falls sick due to an infection, or if the cat is stressed during pregnancy. It can also occur when cats are put on medication by their owners without knowing that their pets are pregnant. Fever Coat appears in kittens because the pigments have not been properly deposited in the fur."
