Gray hairs

Do cats get gray like dogs/horses as they age?

Yes they can...although the majority don't.

Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

Most "graying" cats I've seen lost pigment under the chin.

My favorite breed the Somali seems to be prone to pigment loss in old age, I took this picture of a Somali cat in Germany, I believe she was about 20 years old and she had lost a lot of pigment ! All the white areas used to be as ruddy as the rest of this cat's fur when she was younger.

I don't now how I'd tell His face/chest are all white. I'd have to hope for some salt and ...gingering...on his temples to see it.

Cats named MowMow rarely get grey hair...although they are known to cause grey hair!

Go all out! Why not complete the ensemble with a top hat and monocle too! I think we now require a picture of the Mow dressed like this. *sagenod*

I've never seen a graying cat...but I think Rochelle would look adorable with a little gray muzzle. XD
