I have a three old kitten that was born all white, andnow she has grey ears with a black outlining them, grey feet, grey to black tail and she starting to have a light grey line going down her back she this normal and when will it stop. Her parents are both black also weird hey.
Sounds like one or both parent had a Siamese parent. (A lot of times, the kitten of one Siamese parent and one who is not, will be all black. Do the parents have loud voices?) Anyway, Siamese kittens are born all white and their points shade in after a while, in about the order you are describing. Grey points would be called 'blue point.'
I agree with AnnieBrooke. A cat I had was born pure white, as he got older he started getting "tabby like" markings on his head, legs and tail. Turns out he was a Lynx Point Siamese. And the cutest cat I've ever seen. =]
I agree that this is completely normal. This happens with dalmatian dogs, too. They are usually born all white. The spots start coming in as the puppies get older. All this talk reminds me of my previous cat. I never saw her as a kitten, but she sure was a cute red point Siamese mix.
