Spots on nose.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just a question my mum wanted to know.

We got Nacho and Orion when they were about 4 months old.. given to us by my brother. anyway.. they always had normal colored noses.. but now.. when they were about a year and a half, Orion developed black dots.. like freckles, on his nose.. I guess she was just wondering why.

Dont really have a solution for you, but Oliver has a pink/peach colored nose, except for one teeny tiny black speck! It always looks like a piece of dirt that I want to get off! He's had it since I got him (But he was almost 3 when he became mine) so I don't know if he was born with it... I know a lot of animals don't get their adult coloring right away (ie: most dalmations are born completely white and get their spots later in life and african-american babies are often born without their full pigmentation as well), so that might have something to do with it.... anyone with a more solid answer? That's all I can remember/think of from my old pre-med courses...

I agree - don't think there is anything to worry about. Just keep an eye on them and if you suspect something funny off to the Vet.

The same thing is happening with our orange tabby, Graham. Our vet made sure to tell us (because I'm extra neurotic since having lost Marshmallow to cancer) that this is a normal thing that happens to orange cats. I'm not sure why it happens, but it's very, very common.

The same thing happened to Sunni, our orange girl, and Toby, my mom's orange buddy. Vets say it's normal, in both cases.

My mom's flame point himalayan cat has them on her nose and lips too.

The big male orange cat at my shelter has a bunch of them too all over his nose. (which btw, he is 10 and has been in the shelter for a loooong time and really really needs a loving home, just wants to curl up on your lap and lounge all day long, so if you know anyone around Ohio who wants a great old man...)

Sorry, had to do that...
