A common question (and worry) of cat owners relates to black spots that just seem to "appear" on the lips, nose and eye margins, especially on orange colored cats. What is this, and are these spots something to worry about? Find out in this FAQ.
From the VetMed Forum:
CDM111 asks: "My four year old cat has gradually developed black spots on his lips. They don't seem to bother him and they look okay. I've asked others but no one has heard of it before. I haven't asked our vet yet. I'm hoping its normal. Has anyone ever seen this before? And is it normal?"
