I think I've mentioned before that meezer fur gets darker when its cold (tail, ears, paws) and creamier on the warmer areas. Our fur colors are also affected by age and ambient temperatures. Here you see a picture of me last June (as far back as Meowmy has pictures on this computer). First of all I was in heaven Out of Doors. Secondly you can see I'm quite creamy looking.
And here I am now. As I make my Meowmy write this for me she is staring at my furs as I sit in her lap and saying "Latte, you have gotten so dark!" Its true, I'm really becoming rather dark. My back is rally mostly brown now.
