The National Kitten Coalition rescued this premature newborn kitten, abandoned by its mother after birth. Then after a few days, volunteers noticed it had a rather rare feature: little Rizzo's coat was almost entirely silver!
This strange grey colour is actually due to the formation of a "fever coat", a pigmentation of the kitten's hair that occurs when her mother suffered from an intense fever during pregnancy. In a few weeks, the kitten's silver coat will completely disappear to make room for its final, black colour.
In the meantime, little Rizzo is growing well and will soon be offered up for adoption!
