In the past year ive noticed small black spots on lily's nose and on her lips, what are they?

When Cinnamon got them, my vet said they were age spots....nothing to worry about in Cinny's case

Isn't it too bad they don't stay babies forever?

I call them freckles.

Cats can pigment (freckle) with age just as we do and they don't have to be 'geriatric' to notice.

Some cats are more prone to freckling. Your Lily looks like a tabby and some tabbies known as 'mackerels' can get what is called 'peppered nose'.

It doesn't strike me as feline acne, which would be more prominant at/under the chin.

If this bothers her (or worries you at all) call the vet for ease of mind

Ack, I see this has already been discussed

Your babies are beautiful. I think Lily's freckles really become her.

Think of it as Lily being tanned through a screen door.

I think they are quirky & adorable

My calico has one on her lower lip and it can make her look goofy -- like her lip is caught on her tooth, or something
