Triss, my kitten initially appears to be black with white socks, but see this picture... In light, you can see this brown patterning, and it's getting more noticable day by day. Still depends on angling, though. Do you guys think she's going to grow into this patterning? Her father is black and white (as is her sister, without much sign of patterning) and her mother is white with black spots, but I think also brown ears (hard to tell as you can't get close to her).
