Mancat Monday

It's Monday. To help you cope with that fact, here's a dose of Evan.

Evan was hoping to show you the black whiskers he started to grow amongst his white ones a couple years ago. This here mom of his angled the camera wrong, though. I'll have to do better next time.

Happy Monday to all!

Doodle of the Day

Another library. Another cat. Same old, same old.

Did you know?

Just at with humans, it's possible for cats to gain more white fur as they age. In addition to this, though, did you know that cats with white whiskers can begin growing black whiskers as they age? Black furs can also sometimes start popping up on orange cats, white cats, and cats of other certain colors as they age. This is similar to how cats can get more freckles, or age spots, as they grow older.

The above being said, not all changes in fur or skin color can be attributed to aging. Some nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, cancers, and other ailments can cause a cat's fur or skin to change color. Not all color changes are something to be concerned about as your cats or dogs age, but if you do see any changes in their fur or skin that concern you, don't hesitate to consult a veterinarian.

We are hoping that one of Da Boyz will grow a white whisker, so we can tell them apart again! When adopted, CB had one white whisker, which he lost a few months later. The Hubby says he'll bleach a cat's ear, but I won't let him! (He's totally joking, anyhow)

Nice to see you up close and purrsonal, Evan!

Evan is such a cutie. I love the drawing. And I did not know that about whiskers.

That's such interesting information about whiskers! Mudpie's are all black, but every now and then she gets one white whisker above her eye. I call it a little horn :)

It's a cute face no matter the whisker colors.

Great doodle! A book about cats and books will be a wonderful book.
