Hey everyone! Hopefully someone can help me! But my blue sphynx has developed a really severe discolouration! Is it normal? Can it be sorted? Can they be shown with it?
She doesn't go outside and she isn't in sun exposure :( I have no idea! But it started off with just a little speckle, which has spread across her a little more each day, like a rash!
Hope to hear from you :) xxx

Welcome! Is this the same cat, both pictures? It appears to be pigmentation. I did a search here on the site for pigmentation - have a look at some of these posts- http://sphynxlair.com/community/search/881967/?q=pigmentation&o=date. :)

I agree it looks like pigmentation. We see darker babies(blues and blacks) sometimes darken up this way.

It looks like pigmentation. But you say it happened in two months and she isn't going outside nor in direct sunlight, that makes it an extreme pigmentation! Is she still a kitten?

Wow that was a fast change. No irritations, no yeasty smell? It truly from afar does look like pigmentation.
