Hey guys...one of my kittens (8 months) is supposed to be grey and white. On his tummy mostly and towards his rear and around his face he is brown, and I dont think it is a natural color for him.(he has stockings that are white and white paws and some of the hair on his stomach is the normal white color) I think he is dirty. I have taken him to the Vets for a bath hoping he would come back grey and white, with no more brown but it is still there. I think it might be from the litter box but I clean it everyday. He does clean himself but when I first got him he didnt for a month until I got another kitten and he saw her doing it. Is there anything I can do to make him white agian on his stomach and by his rear and on his face? He is such a dirty boy but i sure love him anyway. Any suggestions? Oh by the way his hair is short to medimum length. Thanks

Hi Winnie. There is always the possibility that his hair may be changing color as he gets older in certain parts of his body.
If you want to be certain, get a cotton ball and wet it with warm water (don't make it too soggy). Then gently wipe the areas that you think are 'dirty' and see if the cotton ball has changed color. If you notice brown coloring on the cotton ball then you know he has something on his fur. If you don't notice any change in coloring on the cotton ball then he is most likely just changing fur color.

The vets I go to have goomers there...I'm not sure how they do it. At petstores they have kitty wipes, you can use that to clean the poo off your kitty. My kitten followed my other kitten into the litter box and got poo on his face and head...i used those wipes and it worked really well, he didnt even smell after.

haha poo on his head golly gosh! unfortunately i dont think anyone sells the kitty wipes here. i just rang someone and they said instead of wasting my money, to put my cat in a sink without water and get someone to cross his front paws over, hold him by the neck with another hand and give him sort of a sponge bath. ill give it a try when my partner gets home. he doesnt seem to mind scratches.
