    He is truly royal!

    I’ve always been fascinated by how his muzzlepuffs aren’t brown. Very distinctive.

      my latest theory for why his colorpoints have lightened so much in the last couple years is that overall his body temperature has increased, due to the ongoing hyperthyroidism and the kidney infection he had before. Since warmer=lighter (I think I’ve memorized my mantra now), then his warmer body temp might be behind his color change? A couple months ago I thought he was maybe getting darker but it must have been an optical illusion. His ears are practically snowy these days.

      This is what his muzzlepuffs looked like when he was a baby kitten. He used to be darker than Tashi! They both have hyperthyroidism, but Tash responds better to the medicine. I asked our very knowledgeable vet about the color change but she couldn’t offer any explanation.

        That makes sense. I looked at one of the Tantra stamps you sent me on a TK get-well card (yes, I still have that!) and he had more dark areas when you took that picture a few years ago.

        So probably him being warmer all the time has led to being less pigmented.

        It makes him stand out from all the other colorpoint kitties in the world, so that should please him. You never know what to expect with Prince T.

Miao & Purr!
