    What bullseye?
    Y'all might remember my thread from a while back about my cat, Lena. She had fallen off the radiator and been trapped behind it.

    After a couple of weeks, I posted here because her fur was falling out. A lot of folks thought it was ringworm, but the vet thought it was likely from a mild burn.

    OK. Fast forward to now, and I'm checking her over, and find that her fur is coming in white! She's a black kitty.

    Anyone have any info on this? I'll call the vet on Monday.

    Thanks.

    Lynn

    Vet was right, reason fur is white is that the folicles(sp?) were damaged.

    Same reason I have a white patch in my beard.

    Also same reason Capt. Ahab had white streak in his hair.

    Glad your fur-baby is healing.

    Please post pix if possible.
