One of my strays has black gums, I don't know if they were always like that. The borders or should I call them lips, on the inside of the mouth, are a fine line of dark purple or black. From reading on the web, I see both explanations, either pigmentation or gum disease. I don't know what to think. I can't trap her and take her to the vet if it's nothing...

Some of my fosters have had black lines and spots on their gums. The vet said it was nothing to worry about. It was pigment. Some of my cats have had black lips. My own tuxy has the pinkest cutest lips. Just the uniqueness of each cat in this world
