Molting and changing markings

Post by gentl on Fri Aug 23, 2013 12:16 am

Rory has just had a heavy molt. Now the new fur is coming in and his markings
are all different! I wouldn't recognize him. Is this normal? I love his new fringe.
He looks adorable. His racing stripe was black but now it is brown and he is getting
spots on his back. confused

Yep, Flo has a different face every season caused by the tide marks from her moult.

I have noticed this wth Binky too. At the moment he has a little "V" on his forehead and a heart shape on his side. It will change again when he has his next moult.

My digital camera has died (for good) but I have taken a lot or Binky with my ordinary camera. Apparently you can get these put onto disk in exactly the same way, so when the film is finshed, that is what I will do.
