Greying

Our 6 year old Siamese cat had a URI for a couple of weeks. He has made a full recovery however, his face just below the eyes has turned greyish almost over night. Should I be worried?

This could be an explantion:

Another condition called unilateral periocular depigmentation has also been described in Siamese cats and is associated with Horner’s syndrome, uveitis and upper respiratory tract infections. In both cases because Siamese markings are temperature sensitive, anything which heats up the hair follicles can lead to a transient or permanent discolouration (whitening of hair) over the inflamed area.

My 8-year-old Seal has the same exact issue, just two weeks after an URI! Her face, from her eyes down her nose to her mouth, is getting "freckled." I called thet vet's office, and two of the vets there said they have no idea what would cause that. But they didn't seem to be concerned.

Take him to the VET

Take him to the vet and have him checked out. Maybe the medicine damaged his liver or something .
