I know from reading about cats all black and grey cats are basically brown.
I just gave Persia a nice brushing. She's not a long-haired cat but she
still has a nice ruff around her neck. Well, I noticed it's turning
brown. Same thing with her chest.
I cannot capture this in a photo, sorry. It is rather surprising.
Tyrosine deficiency? This site is interesting;
And it points to this one which seems more definitive:
Can aging humans take a bunch of it as a supplement to bring back their
original hair color?
Actually, I wouldn't toy around with something like that, with myself or
with a cat. If there's any chance of liver failure due to an overdose,
there would have to be pretty dire consequences from *not* taking it, to
take that kind of risk. Fur color (or human grey hair) is not a dire
consequence. So some black cats end up looking like a weird tortie, is
that so bad?
Whenever you feel anger, you should say, "May I be free of this
anger!" This rarely works, but talking to yourself in public will
encourage others to leave you alone.
