what color is the floating cat?
The color of a supernova. Of a white dwarf star collapsing on itself, becoming a black hole from which no light can escape. Of a genetic mutation that allows you to see in shades of red and green for the first time, beyond the gray-toned past of your ancestors.
And when that gene is passed down, through generation upon generation, until your great-great-great-great-great-grandniece looks upon her child for the first time and sees the dozens of colors that make up his fingernails alone—
—that is the color of Khoshek’s fur.
It’s also the color of kisses and head scritches. Just watch out if he’s in one of his moods.
