Smile Colour change!

I knew it was possible for winter whites to change colours in the winter time. I got winston from a pet shop though and so came to the conclusion that he was a hybrid and probably wouldnt change that much. I was wrong! He looks like a completley different guy! Just thought I'd share some pics to show, it's really fascinated me watching him change

Mine has changed colour too, though not as much as yours. She used to have greyish-brown top fading orange around the edges, then a grey belly. Now her belly is a much clearer white, the orange is gone, and her coat is overall lighter. Strangely, she has one band of fur that has hardly changed at all which shows really well the contrast between her old and new coats.

Yeah, Winston is the same just behind his front legs. It's just about the same colour he was and it's so crazy to see the difference! You dont notice it so much when its gradual so it's a cool contrast
