I remember a couple years back I went to visit one of my friends who apparently had to much time on his hands and he used Green Food Coloring and washed the Cat.

It was such a hoot to see this Bright Green Cat.

And the look of his partner face when they came home was tooo priceless but it was a perfect time for me to exit since I did not want to stay around for that argument.

Cats are so easy to pick on especially with key chain lights.

No, I haven't - ever...I love my doggies' hair, so why change it? Plus, I don't think they would like it...

Most extreme I ever got was brushing dogs' hair up for the Mr. T. Effect :>) Was too afraid to put gel on, thank God, so would just H2O-dampen the tips a little sometimes. And do plead guilty of trying to put a hat on them. But didn't stay on long.

I dyed my shih tzu pink once, shes mostly white.. Used kool-aid in a hydro surge tub at work (was a groomer back then), came out kind of bright at first. She looked like a flamingo lol. But after a few weeks it turned light pink and it looked pretty cute. One of my co-workers gave me the idea, she had a standard poodle she dyes pink all the time.

I only do to my cat what he wants or what he needs. Coloring his fur doesn't belong in any of these categories. Besides, I love him just the way he looks.

Many years ago I used to take care of a horse that was white. One year for St. Patrick's Day we dyed him green. It all washed off of his body, but his mane & tail did not let go of the color. This was a show horse, and he had to go in the ring with a green mane & tail.

I also used to be a blonde. One time while we were touching up my roots there was some bleach left in the bottle. We had a black & tan pit bull. We made a circle around one of his eyes (like the dog in the Little Rascals). When it grew out we made another circle around the other eye just to see if people would notice. When that grew out we drew him a pair of eyeglasses. The dog was good natured about it. If you put it on black dog hair and then wipe it right off it makes the same brown as the markings.

that is a little too intense bleach is not good for the dog skin fur or eyes

Yes, I have GIVEN my poodle a tint to match the halloween costumes of orange...she was gorgeous. We used fruit based color; Kool Aid. That way she was safe, and it was not harmful to the eyes, skin etc. It didn't come out for several washings. I've seen pink, blue, and other colors at the Grooming Salon we go to also. The fancy ladies in the 1960s used to do this all the time. I'm not sure what the pro's use, but we had good results with KoolAid. Try the extreme "punk" stuff at the Beauty Supply stores; it is really Neon-bright, and vegetable based. Good luck.

When I was grooming we had a lady that we dyed her poodle pink on a regular basis. She really did look very cute.
