Why did my cats face get lighter?

Just wondering, over the summer, half of my cats face got lighter, and then come fall it turn back to dark? Is this just because he was in the sun more? He just turned 2 on December 26!

Attached is a recent picture and a picture from this summer

Well! It's natural and no one can do to change the color of you cat. Infect, your cat in this color looking very awesome and why you're worry about that color. So, Don't worry about it. any how, i found more information at http://www.topessayservices.com/essay-format/ about different kinds of cats before come this website but this website have a lot cats and its funny activities as well.

Thank you! I don't know why half got lighter! It was his fur that got lighter! He tends to switch back and forth on what side he gets sun at! I just found it so odd!

Thanks :)

Cat's face got lighter NEW

Hi there,

I am not sure why half of his face would have got lighter. Why not the whole face? was he out in the sun for the Summer? or does he lie on one side only which might have got sun? Are you talking about his skin getting lighter or his fur? It's hard to visualise the picture taken in the summer.

I wouldn't worry too much about it as he is a gorgeous cat!

Best wishes,
