I see lots of threads for black cats/tabby’s/tortoise etc. I’d love to see some of y’all’s beautiful pointed babies!

Here’s my Zuko baby!

Fun fact! Did you know pointed cats are actually albinos? They’re simply temperature sensitive ones! These little mood ring babies have an albino gene that is only active between100.4-102.5 F (38-39.2 C); that’s a cats body temp! Their extremities however can get a bit chillier which is why pointed cats are dark on their feet, ears, tail, etc! Plus their little noses where they breathe in cool air! (Bonus! My guy has only one eye, and the hair around the empty socket is darker than around his good eye 😳) In fact, when they are born, they are all white from the warmth of their momma’s womb, but as they are exposed to the outdoor air they slowly get their signature darker extremities! When a pointed cat loses hair in an area, it will often grow in darker, because the exposed skin is colder, but once the hair has grown back and the skin warms back up, the hair will lighten again to it normal tone! That also means if you were to make your pointed cat wear socks all the time, his feet would turn white 🤯

Enjoy your extra special little guys!
