Cat

Janie The Kitten’s fur was born with a silver coat and changes color

When Janie the kitten was found all alone on a hot sidewalk, she was barely 24 hours old.

Tiny But Mighty Kitten Rescue knew exactly what to do for the kitten in need when she came into their care. Founder Mellissa told Bored Panda, “The people who found her told me that she was screaming for her life. She was left in full sun, which caused quite bad burns on her hind paws. “

Janie was tiny on her burnt baby feet. She weighed 82 grams on Mellissa’s scales. Imagine a small apple to get an idea of ​​how small Janie was when she was found. But to be so small, Janie was certainly powerful. Mellissa reported that Janie was a “fairly active and vocal” kitten.

Silver fur and cheeky paws

Janie has an unusual look on her that has caught the attention of the internet. Her silver fur dust had asked cat lovers on social media if Janie could be Siamese or colored. But Mellissa said it was unlikely since Siamese kittens are born white and Janie would not be old enough to develop a coloration if it were.

The fact of Janie’s unusual fur is a phenomenon known as a “fever coat”.

“Janie was born with a fever coat that can appear when pregnant cats are sick or stressed.”

Eventually their silver fur would turn black. But in the meantime, before she became a slim black cat, Janie had something to do. And she found comfort and care not only in Mellissa, but also in a mother cat with young kittens named June.

A mother and a few fuzzy siblings

While Janie spent her two weeks in quarantine from other cats, June watched the kitten in her incubator. Mellissa spoke to Love Meow and said, “She wanted the baby so badly and kept crying in the incubator.”

When the time came for Janie and June to meet nose to nose, the devoted mother cat immediately accepted “Janie as her own”.

“June had to lick and clean her for a good 10 minutes, and then she snuggled around everyone while June’s babies nursed. It was a sweet moment to be a witness. “

While June’s kittens were young, they looked so big next to their little sister! But everyone welcomed Janie to the furry pile. Big sister Jasmine was particularly interested in her new littermate.

As Janie grew, the silver color of her fever coat faded, but her cheeky demeanor remained intact. Janie is another perfect example of Tiny but Mighty!
