Coat change/colour


When we first got Amber her coat was thick and quite coarse. It also looked dull and "dusty" especially around her head if that makes sense.

With proper nutrition, grooming [lol when she allows it] and generally being pampered by two foots and canine 4 foots she has come into her own.

We have noticed that the coat feels much softer, still thick, beginning to get a soft sheen, but she is no longer a dull grey colour - at the rescue they said she was a silver tabbly. Her coat has taken on a decided blue colour, I thought this was happening before but its actually fact now.

Has anyone else ever seen this happen?

Re: Coat change/colour


I do think that colours can strengthen or fade as a cat grows up. Pip's orange kitten colouring has darkened to a gorgeous red/gold and I don't think "ginger" ever really suited his colouring.

The change in coat texture as you rightly say is due to better nutrition and grooming. I can always tell if my two are feeling good and happy when their coats go really silky! Well done. I think we need new photos of Amber so we can see how well she is looking now!!!
