Default Blue line on Cat's Stomach?

Ever since we adopted our cat he has had this blue line on his stomach. If you pull his fur away on the middle of stomach, you can see it. Its a little over a centimeter long but it isn't raised or anything, it just seems like its part of his skin thats randomly blue.

Is this just his belly button or something? Or should I be concerned. hHe doesn't seem bothered by it, but I don't know

Can you post a picture?
I think it could be one of two things:
1. Natural pigmentation in his skin, indicating a 'spot'.
2. Tattoo to indicate spay/neuter, though I thought only female kitties had a tattoo put on their bellies to indicate spay, as neuter is pretty obvious...

All of my kitties are 'hams' when the camera comes out. Maybe you can get a pic when he is relaxed and/or sleeping on his back, or you could get someone to help, by either holding him or taking the photo?
No biggie, I'll wait as long as it takes to see what you are describing.

well, as of right now, it is impossible to take a picture (my camera somehow found itself in dad's work office, he always seems to "forget"to bring it home) It almost does seem like a tattoo, but its weird that it would only be a tiny line.

It does sound weird, that's why I was hoping I could see it, too. Oh, and about the camera? I feel your pain. I cannot tell you how many times I've wanted to snap a pic of something and the husband forgot the camera is *his* office at work!

I've never seen anything like that. Is he some sort of Robokitty?

Good idea. We all know that would be kitty porn.
