Magnificent Black Cat Grows Silver Winter Coat

Fluffy cats often poof up for the winter, but this gorgeous black cat surprised the volunteers with a layer of silver fur she just grew. Now she's ready for someone to take her home for the holidays.

Meet Genevieve!

She was born a feral but turned very friendly after being socialized by volunteers. This six-year-old cat has always had a beautiful black coat, but somehow this year her fur color has changed with this added silver hue.

"We shaved her over the summer. Her fur had gotten really thick, and there was some matting, so it was easier to just shave it (at the vets)... and when her hair grew back it's now black and silver," The Goathouse Refuge told Love Meow

"Genevieve is already wearing her winter-wonderland-holiday-outfit! The only thing missing is a home and warm, loving family gathering she can wear it to."

This summer she got a shave to help her cope with the heat.
