Help for my cats nose!

Hi everyone, I don't post very often but I have a question about my female cat Orry. She is a 4 year old half Siamese moggy and she's pure white with very pink ears and nose. Recently I noticed she appears to have a black 'stain' on the right nostril, I thought it was a scratch from her brother that was healing but a couple of weeks later it's still black. She isn't in any discomfort as far as I can tell and doesn't appear to have any other health issues but it still seems weird?

I'm going to call the vet this week but if anyone has any ideas I'd be grateful.

Thanks!

ETA that she is an exclusively indoor cat and has never been outside

No the stain is completely flat, almost as if the nostril is bruised. I cleaned her nose earlier with some cotton wool and it didn't seem to hurt her at all. I will take a photo and post it tomorrow (it's almost 11pm here and I have to go to bed sorry!)

Thanks for replying

Sounds like pigmented skin. My vet says cats with light colors develop these. Rocket has several spots on his lips. My vet says they're nothing to be concerned about. But do ask your vet about it as I'm not sure it's the same thing or not.

Mine has a couple of spots on his pink nose and lips. I think it's just kitty freckles.
