Is it my eyes, or is there something wrong with these kittens? What do you think is wrong with them? They're on the shelter website, but I didn't see them at the shelter today. :(

Golly Tonya! I've never seen anything like them either. I wonder if it's a certain breed? I'm kind of like you and don't think they look right. They don't have any descriptions or comments about them?

They aren't up for adoption, they're still under the "Pets looking for their owners" section. It just says:

I am an unaltered female, calico and white Domestic Mediumhair.

You will find me in kennel H05.

I have been at the shelter since Aug 04, 2004.

I'm wondering if they got burned, or a bad case of fleas? It kind of looks like they're hairless.

I gotta end this on a happier note, I got to pet this beauty and her kittens today. She's a sweetie even though she's supposedly a trapped feral. She reminded me of Raven.

AWWWE! She is a beautiful girl! She doesn't look feral and she can't be too bad if you got to pet her!

I would love to see those kittens is person to see if they are ok or just have the most unusual colorations I have ever seen!!! They are odd looking but cute.

Tonya, the kittens look a little funny, but not hurt, well they're eyes look a little sore, but that's all.

They look like they could have Sphynx or Rex in them(Devon Rex/Cornish Rex) from the ears and coat a little.

They may be one of a handful of exotic breeds, like the Devon Rex like Robyn suggested.

Or the Cornish Rex.

But I agree they look almost singed. Be interesting to find out what they are.

But also look burnt or missing patches of fur from digging (fleas, serious mites= mange?) what has the vet said? what does mom look like? They are seriously CUTE!

When I walked through the shelter today, I didn't see them there. But once I came home, I looked on the shelter website just in case Raven's picture may be up and I saw the kittens there. They do look like those rex kitties though.

They do look kind of burned or singed. Especially since that one has little black specks in it's fur. I hope they are okay.

I'm glad you gave us the happier note with the mamma and her kittens. They are beautiful.

I was about to say that they look like rexes, too! (my dream cat is a Devon Rex!)

Hmmmm either exotics, or ringworm, singed fur. Gorgeous little babies anyway! And that Siamese mix is stunning as are her babies. :) :) ;)
