DQ, *HUGS* I sympathize, living at home at an age when we shouldn't be. Parents. Mothers.
Fishy, you're lucky you had the clippers and could do it yourself. Had to take our cats into a groomers. She looks so pretty!
Hahahaha, Laki, I can guarantee the skin is plain old pink/white. And I've also noticed with my tabbies that if they have a spot that is clipped/shaved, it grows back tan with no pattern. All my tabbies have tan bellies where they were shaved for their neuter/spay and one of my tabbies has a big tan blotch on his leg where he was clipped to have a tumor removed.
