From kittens with eyebrows to puppies with love hearts on their rear – we take a look at some really cool markings and patterns on our furry friends.
There are countless genes that determine different aspects of fur colour, length, patterns and other properties. Random mutations can lead to interesting colours and shapes. If you have a pet with a ‘special mutation’ consider yourself honoured! And we at petinsure.ie would love to see a picture – just check out our Facebook post and add your cute photo to be featured on our blog!
