Re: Pale nose?
My Squirrely-Jo has a pink nose. <-- she is the kitty in my avatar Usually it is a pale white color, but if she's been running and active, it gets a nice, healthy pink color because of her faster heartrate. Checking the gums is also a good way to check for anemia ... they should be pink. If you press on them and lift your finger, it should be white and quickly change back to pink. Also, her gums shouldn't ever feel 'sticky', they should be slippery with saliva.
