    all,

    I have a 5 months old boy (Raisin) and he recently developed these freckles-looking spots. Have you seen these on any other Sphynx cat? Do they look like normal pigmentation/freckles or could it be a skin infection? An allergy? He doesn’t seem uncomfortable or itchy.

    Please let me know your thoughts!

    Thank you in advance for your help,
    Julia

    Is your baby in the sun a lot more lately? Our tuxedo girl got this one year and it disappeared as soon as she stopped sunning as much. It was just pigmentation. The darker Sphynx tend to have more noticeable pigmentation issues.

    These look very much like sun tan spots. My sphynx darken in summer and some of my past sphynx have gotten these freckles.
