  1. Oh wow! Light…..dark…..light again. Shadow’s just gotten darker and darker. Was the prince in some catnip for his first digital picture?

    Most Princely… all color variations.

    Is he graying with age? Some cats do. As a child, I knew my step-grandfather’s cat as a gray tabby of some years, and was astonished to learn that when he was a younger cat, he was a actually a brown tabby.

  6. Oldcat says:

    I’ve seen cats grey, but it’s usually at the muzzle instead of all over. I’m not aware of what could change a ‘brown’ tabby with time. Sometimes the change to maturity can make a big change – for example, my tabby Julie got browner as he got larger, if I am remembering right.

    In the case of a colorpoint cat, the change in color between points and body is temperature sensitive. This is why kittens are paler all over – they are warmer due to small body size. In the pics one of the darker ones is a Christmas picture, and the recent light ones are summer shots. This might explain some of it.

    He could also be stealing a credit card and gettiing bleach treatments at a posh salon. You never can tell, cats are sneaky.

  7. Lurkertype says:

    Prince T has a higher body temp now with his thyroid problem. That’s why his face points are lightening.

    Also, he wants to be more distinctive.

    • Oldcat says:

      It does bring out the ‘ghost’ M on the forehead very distinctly that is normally hidden by his non-agouti gene. Interesting.

      He’s a handsome cat.
