Lost Newborn Kitten Stunned His Rescuers When He Began To Change Color

When his owners found baby Bruce the kitten, he was just one day old and teeny tiny!

The itsy-bitsy kitty was as small and as grey as a little mouse. He was so fragile, his eyes hadn’t even opened yet. He snuggled closely to his new mama and papa and began to grow stronger with their constant care.

Within weeks he opened his beautiful blue eyes, but that wasn’t all that changed…

Do you know why Bruce transformed the way he did? According to vets, Bruce’s mom likely had an infection or a fever while she was pregnant with him.

The fuzzy grey fur he was born with is called a ‘fever coat.’ It’s fur that appears lighter at birth, but gradually darkens in the first months of a kittens life. Bruce transformed into a magnificent black kitty when he shed his baby fur.
