Devon woman Joan Worth is mystified after her snow white cat Brumas suddenly turned bright pink.
Philip and Joan Worth, of Bratton Clovelly, near Okehampton, could not believe their eyes when Brumas came home.
The nine-year-old cat had undergone a drastic transformation.
Mrs Worth said: "He was pink - Barbie pink. His head, ears and right down his body, although not underneath, had gone a quite brilliant pink."
Mr Worth added: "He went out snow white and came back Barbie pink.
"We went to the vet, but they couldn't find any reason for it, although they decided it wasn't toxic, which was what I was worried about."
