So I recently adopted a beautiful black cat. Today is the first sunlight here in weeks. And all of the sudden I see that she is brown! Is this normal for black cats? Or is my black cat secretly a brown cat?
I was looking into if she could be a Bombay but I think this shows she isn't right? She does have a black nose and black beans.
I've never had a black cat before so I know basically nothing about them

Most black cats take on a brown sheen in direct sunlight. Black cats also get something known as "rusting" if they have a lot of sun exposure, which is where the fur takes on a reddish tinge.

She's beautiful, what's her name?
Thanks! Her name is Miso
