Hello there and thanks for admittance to what seems like a very wonderful and informative group. My cat Charlie gave birth today to 6 beautiful and healthy kittens. They are all black. We took Charlie in as a stray about a month ago so we have no idea who the "dad" is lol. Charlie is all black and long haired with some bits of red(small bits) in her coat. All of her kittens seem to be completely black. Does this mean that they will stay all black or is it possible for them to change color after. I kow this sounds like a silly question I am sure, but all 6 black? I just wondered if maybe they arte usually born this color from a black mother and then change to orange, grey, etc lol. Plesae dont laugh me off the board here people. Anyhow, besides that, it was all pretty cool. Momma cat insisted I be there in between chasing around two todlers during her labor. So I was able to help her out with cutting a few of the cords as they came in fast succession, I checked them all out and they appear quite healthy and are all suckling with no cries to be heard. Anyhow, I appreciate you feedback on my question. Thanks.
