Mr. Silverman welcomes you to today’s Feline Friday. I didn’t have time to post the weekly cats this morning. But, as they say, better late than never.
Look at these two pictures of Silverman. The top photo was taken in the last day or so. The bottom photo was taken in 2001.
They demonstrate how his coloring has changed as he has gotten to be an elderly guy. When he first joined our household and earned his name, he really was a silver gray. Now the silver is hidden by the darker stripes.
Pretty amazing. Duke has also had a lengthy color change. Like other cats with a Siamese heritage, he started out as a white kitten, and slowly developed the deep brown coloring, which has spread and deepened over the years.
I wonder what percentage of cats experience similar changes?
