Every night, the mysterious cat spent in the abandoned garage turned its fur to become more colorful.
Experts say that the ink that caused this will eventually fade and come out of the cat’s fur over time. They also stated that it’s nothing to worry about because they believed that the paint would not harm the cat. But one thing’s for sure; the paint turned the cat into an overnight celebrity.
