Rizzo was less than half the size of a normal newborn when he came to National Kitten Coalition in need of a lot of help. He was born two days premature but the little baby had a strong will to live!
"Little Rizzo came into foster as a two-day preemie just hours old," National Kitten Coalition said.
Two weeks later, his eyes began to open. "His coloring is called a 'fever coat' and happens when the mother cat is ill with a high fever during pregnancy."
"The silver portion of his fur will eventually turn black. Just as with Siamese points, which are due to a temperature sensitive gene, the coloring shows darker on his extremities because their temperature is cooler."
At 6.3 ounces, his eyes were wide open, and his coat was silver and very unique.
"A couple of mine in the past seemed to keep almost a silvery undercoat even though they were basically black," Susan added.
Rizzo has white toes and white on his chest and face so he will be a handsome tuxedo once he grows out of his fever coat.
