True Colors

When Mommy and Daddy first brought me home, my furs were mainly white and I had darker furs on my tail. This is a picture of me at 3 months old.
I had two black marks on either ear which Mommy said looked like angel wings which is how I got my name. Well, in addition to me being an angel of course!
This picture is of me at almost 1 1/2 years old, my furs were getting darker and my black angel marks on my head were getting bigger because I was becoming more of an angel I guess!
Today I am 2 1/2 years old and my furs are still getting darker and I'm turning a little orange too. It's just taking me awhile to find my true colors!

Have you changed colors too?

Angel, how interesting! Siamese and Birma "do" that too, we think. Your fur colour is very special and beautiful. I haven't changed fur colour but it is said that Norwegian Forest Cats take up to two years to reach their full floofyness. Ahhh, I see floof in my future!

You are such an Angel! Mommy used to have an Angel too, she is now a real kitty angel. She changed colors too, her points kept getting darker.

That's a definite Ragdoll characteristic. Maybe you're part doll as well as angel :)

How pretty! Since I just got Jane I don't know what she looked like as a baby. But Jelly Bean got more sort of orangy/brown spots as she grew. She's a tabby with 'orange undertones'.

i give her an "A"ngel+

Roses and Lilacs said...

I think she is prettier now. She looks like a dilute calico. I can certainly see the angel wings;)

You're very pretty with both sets of colors, Angel!

When Delilah was a kitten, her tortie colors had a lot of black in it but as her body got bigger, more of the orange came out in her body.

Samson's birthmark on his nose/cheek was just a freckle when he was little and now that he's 2, it's become two big dots!

Have a great Monday

Hi Angel, When I was a kitten I was all white except for my ears and a little bit of color on my tail. Now I have pretty golden colors that look like the sun tanned me. The lady who my Mommy adopted me from said that she thought my Daddy was her neighbors cat cause I look just like him. He was Siamese. I think your angel wings are pretty and so are your colors. Do you have a boyfriend? Love, Moon

Heck yeah -- I've gone the exact opposite direction from you. I used to be golden, but now I'm nearly all white.

That's sooo cute!

It just took some time for your true colors to "develop"!

I was a very pale dilute calico when I was a bebbeh, and my colors have been getting darker as I get older, too.

Your true colors are always there - you just like to show different colors to keep people interested and on their toes. All of your colors are just stunning Angel - may your fur never tangle and may it always hold people enthralled. :)

I have always thought you were the most beautiful cat, Angel. Thanks for showing your pictures.

She is such and Angel :) I think you found the perfect name!

Harley, my Pom, was much darker when we first got him...he has lightened up so much since. But this is common with poms :)

Tom Cat said...

What a pretty Angel, I think I've always been the same colors, but I don't remember.

Oooh, a beautiful transformation! My coat has changed rather dramatically; I'll have to post about it some time!
Play bows,

We've all gotten darker as we got older. We think you're a purrfect angel!

Beadin By The Sea said...

How sweet to see you as a kitten Angel. I think you're aging beautifully!

Khyra The Siberian Husky said...

That's so interesting! We think Angel is a calico (not sure if she thinks so, though).

We're not sure about Dobby, but both Franklin and Tasha have been the same colors since they were little. My hair has definitely gotten much much darker - especially over the last 10 years.

Such a pretty kitty!
