I was sitting here looking at salem sitting on my keyboard and realized that he only has ONE white hair on his ENTIRE body and it is one of his whiskers lol. sorry if this is something not worth posting about but the more i look at it the wierder it seems to me.

ciao,
Val

If I look hard enough I can find a few white hairs on Spyder as well. Don't think I've ever seen any on Winnie or Stormy though.

I've noticed my calico Joji having more white hair than before. Mmm, part of aging I guess.

Max, my black and white tuxedo had white whiskers. I always thought that was pretty neat.

I read somewhere that just about all black cats have at least one or two white hairs on them, because most entirely black cats were destroyed as "Satan's spawn" during the witch hunts of the Middle Ages. It's probably not true, since I've also read that the position in the womb, i.e., warmer or cooler spot, determines the ratio of white to color in bicolor cats.

Lucy has a stray white hair here and there and a very small white patch on her tummy.

Mooch has all white whiskers abover one eye and one white one above the other. The rest of her whiskers there are black and don't show up unless you are looking for them against her black fur. I think it's cute!

I heard it can take up to 3 months for a cat to gets its full markings. I'm not sure though!!

All of my cats have these little funny things that make them unique. Zakk has different colored paw pads on each foot- some are pink, some black!
Rocky is your classic tux, but he has a lot of white hairs on his back and when he was younger you could really see a "ghost" marking of tabby. Suzie has all black paws, except for one back foot that is lighter colored, with a splash of orange and 1/2 the paw pads are pink! She also has some black marking around her mouth and nose that looks like she just ate some mud. It's getting more pronounced as she is getting older. She is a mostly grey tabby with a little bit of orange.
