    Rare Albino Cone!

    I recently rescued what appeared to be a rare albino cone. He doesn't have a name yet, but he's been making himself right at home.


    Here he is just hanging out on the counter.


    On the top of the cat tree.


    He really likes to hang out on the recliner.


    He tried to cuddle with Corkscrew, but Corkscrew didn't really seem to like him.


    Here he is with the rest of his new cone family.
    I've been Defrosted!

    Thanks for the great signature Kay!

    Awww...he's adorable! He looks like he's making himself right at home already, and looks like he's getting the group hug thing from the rest of his new cone family. I'm sure Corkscrew will come around too - but what about Tibby?

    I like the name "Blanche" Many albinos are deaf, have you noticed any reactions when you speak from behind??

    LOL! I think I almost peed my pants! It's so nice of you to get him off the street. You should name him Whitey like the guy in Me, Myself, & Irene.

    Oh my gosh what a find!!! There are very rare and I read somewhere they only breed in dark rain forests because the sunlight is too bright for them. Congratulations on giving him a loving home.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    What a beautiful Cone! I agree with Laurie, the name Blanche just suits it! Its seems to be getting along quite well with your other cones also. Corkscrew will eventually accept the new cone, I'm sure.

    Good luck with the new cone and congratulations on the new addition!!

    Thank You, kittycats_delight for my new siggy!!!

    OMG! He is so cute! Are you going to breed him? If so, put me on the waiting list.


    Thank you Wolfie!

    I thought about it seeing as how the albino cone is endagered, but I don't think I am able to handle a little cone family at this time so I don't think I'll be breeding him. Can cones get neutered?

    I am sure he can get neutered, I don't know where to find a place that will neuter male albino cones though. Good luck, I think Blanche fits him very well!

    OMG! I'm speechless! What a rare find! Lucky you! Perhaps if you kept him locked up in a separate room for a bit and introduced him SLOWLY to the cats, they'll adjust.
