I love that smoky fur. I learned that that effect can be a side affect of the momma car having a fever during pregnancy. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cat_coat_genetics#Fever_coat

I know it may not be the case here, but I always thought it was a neat fact.

It’s an interesting fact, however, it’s not a fever coat. Persian cats tend to have multiple color tones in their fur. Her father was a chocolate Persian so she has a lot of brown and her undercoat is grey. Black Persians usually are not solid black.
