I'm not fat,- just fluffy.

My owner would like to dye my fur for the holidays coming up.
She doesnt want to seem like shes being mean or anything.She just wants to do something different.
She's read on the internet some ways of doing so.
One, grind up chalk and mix it with water to form a paste. And spread it on my fur until it dries. [making sure not to let me lick it] and once it's dry,wash it out. She's also read that you can add food coloring to the paste.
She's not sure if its such a good idea or not but she wants to do it.
Are there any safer ways to do this?
Or is that way safe enough?
If not then I guess She'll just have to have a brown and black kitty for the holidays :p

Gosh, Kilala, I don't think I would want to have anything like that done to me. Kitty skin can be sensitive and it might be hard to avoid ingesting some residue. Ick. Maybe she could tie a pretty bow or something to your collar instead.

I've seen cats dyed with Manic Panic. Just be careful not to let the cat lick it while it's on and rinse well.

I saw a toy poodle dyed pink once but it was on TV. They had taken it to the groomer so maybe you should ask your local groomer and see what kind of stuff they use or if they can recommend anything to you.

I have heard of others using Kool-aid. However, since you are balck, you will not hold any color well. Go au natural!!!!

This is Delyte. It's highly unlikely that your black fur will hold any color enough to make it worth the trouble. A simple red ribbon and bow looks fabulous and festive on a black cat. [See my page.] Hope your person changes their mind!

My owner changed her mind when she bought a certain type of kitty shampoo. It brings out the black in me and makes my coat shinier and much softer. I recomend this to dark coated kittys. :]


Don't leave me- alone!!

But Sweetie, you have such gorgeous colors!! Why would you want to change that?? I certainly wouldn't like to have that done!! *hisssssssss*

actually as i groomer i sometimes dye Riddick. the last time he was a lovely shade of teal. it is not a dangerous thing and only lasts a few weeks on him, not to mention it never gets close to his face. i am able to color his fur since he is a very high white color and takes dye nicely, unfortunaly darker fur colors don't hold dye, just like darker haired humans.
