Kitten Is Normal, Except For Green Fur

Tue., Nov. 14, 1995

A kitten with green fur has local veterinarians puzzled.

“Experts from the university hospital said that the color also appears in the hair follicles,” Pia Bischoff, the kitten’s owner, said Monday. “It could be a metabolism defect.”

The 2-month-old feline, called Miss Greeny, is all green except for a gray spot on the back, she said. Samples of the kitten’s green hair have been sent to Copenhagen’s university hospital for testing.

Other than the unusual shade, Miss Greeny is a normal, frisky feline.

“She is bobbing around, playing and being adorable like all other kittens,” said Bischoff, who lives in Dybvad, 160 miles northwest of Copenhagen.
