The famous bright green cat which became an internet sensation a month ago was restored to her less glamorous natural look, after animal rights activists gave the feline a wash.
The unusually colored cat was spotted walking around the streets of Varna, Bulgaria’s biggest port on the Black Sea, in early December.

In the video below we see the uniquely coated feline playing with a ginger cat, whose seems not in the least bothered by her pal’s stark bright-green fur. (Scroll down for the video.)
