    I think he would fit in well here and luckily he's being fed here I've paper collared him with no response! As it's been so warm the windows have been open and he's been in most days!

    Or Kristoff from Frozen, or Jespah (from Born Free, son of Elsa the lioness)?

    Hi everyone is it normal for a blue kitten to go kind of brown? He definitely isn't eating food so it can't be that :Joyful

    Yes it's just tarnishing, it will probably fade at least to a degree.

    Ah ok does this happen in all coloured cats then? Ive known black cats go brownish I assumed it was maybe being in the sun. My partner was trying to tell me it was food which I know its not they have no access to food or interest.

    They don't have food as in food in a dish, but they are drinking milk and maybe being messy with milk is part of it. The amount the sun affects cats varies.

    It can happen without sun too, it can be genetic and can be seen in young kittens without much sun exposure

    Ah I see we had black cats when I was growing up and I remember them going brown as they got older. These 2 just look like they are getting very mucky which I am sure they will be very soon :Joyful the dad has some tarnishing and his belly is silvery brown so maybe it is genetic :)

    Is dad booked in to be neutered? If not already mentioned, he can still get mum pregnant for a number of weeks post neuter. Sooner he's done, the better, and keep them separate still :)
