Weird

I have been noticing the last few days that Caliban has a salt & pepper muzzle lately. He’s not even 5 so it isn’t old age.

You can't see it as prominently in the picture as in real life - little shit wouldn't hold still long enough to focus the camera.

Upon doing some quick internet research (you know – browsing forums of people who know just as little about the topic as I do), it seems that there is a common thread in human slaves who have had their Siamese overlords turn salt and pepper as well. After illnesses, especially ones they took medication to fix, their fur can go salt and pepper but will turn back dark eventually. The pointed Siamese can get what is called “fever fur.” Maybe all Siamese can, but there were more references to the pointed ones, specifically.

He did just get over a cold when he was sneezing all over everything all day long. No antibiotics, but he did take antihistamines for a week.

Weird.

    I second the sweater. He’s PUTTING those spots there to game your brain in retaliation for the sweater.

    Devious fiend. ;-)
