The real Pink Panther

The kittens whose fur changed colour after being bathed in cement – This adorable sight is one that could have easily been a tale of tragedy.Four kittens were found abandoned in a concrete factory in Reduct, Cornwall, weak and malnourished.But they are now being nursed back to health and are very much in the pink – in more ways than one.
Staff at the Cats Protection charity were given quite a shock when they tried to wash the four-week-old cats and they couldn’t remove the reddish hue from one, earning it the nickname ‘Pink Panther’.She was rescued by workers along with her two sisters and a tom cat – called Clouseau, Dusty and Cerise. It is thought that they came into contact with red pigment used in concrete manufacturing which had caused their unusual appearance. The dying is less obvious in three of the cats but Pink Panther has a creamy fur so she appears bright pink.
