This is my new kitten. Her mom is pure black her dad is dark grey. People keep telling me she will lose her color and turn more brown? The lighter grey photo was 2 weeks ago her sleeping is today. She was born March 22. I Named her Ash. Any clues on what color she might really be?

I think she'll be solid black. Kittens often have ghost stripes, but those generally fade with age (sometimes still visible in the right light). Her nose would be a lighter color if she were gray, I think :).

Solid black is my guess also. Our black one also had those ghost tabby markings that have pretty much disappeared though in the right light I can still see a faint "M" on her forehead and striping on her legs.

She's lovely! She appears to be blue (gray) to me in these pictures. Ghost stripes are commonly seen on solid colored kittens and mostly fade with age.
