A mystery, which left residents of a small coastal town scratching their heads, has been solved as the moggy come to be known simply as green cat finally had a wash.
Locals in the Black Sea resort of Varna, Bulgaria, assumed the unusually coloured kitty had been abducted when she seemingly vanished from town.
However, a rational mind soon deducted that the rain has simply stripped away the emerald tinge from her fluffy coat, as a similar looking cat with green ears was spotted. Phew!

In December last year, the green moggy suddenly appeared, leading Varna residents to believe she has been cruelly spray painted by vandals and prompted a Facebook campaign to track down those responsible.
It was later discovered that the poor puss had coloured itself after sleeping in green paint.
We can all rest easy knowing green cat is alive and well… Although it may be a while longer before her odd colouring fades once and for all.
