Nasal pigmentation can change benignly with age - and this is very common in orange tabbies. The nose turns black, initially starting with the appearance of small dots of black coloration.

There can be more serious causes of pigment changes, however, such as masses, infections, and immune-related disease. It would be best to have your cat examined by a veterinarian.

Why is my cat's nose turning black?
  • Usually this change in pigmentation is just down to age.
  • It can also be caused by any sort of wound. If your cat's nose has been injured, it may come back a darker color after the wound has healed.
  • Unfortunately, this change of color could also be due to various infections, including bacterial, parasitic or fungal infections.
  • It may also be the sign of a more serious problem with your pet.
If you still have concerns about this change in color of your cat's nose, then take your pet to the nearest veterinary surgery.
