Stress can make pets go grey — 6 Comments

  1. Yet another brilliant insight by my favorite cat guy, Michael. Cats do suffer from anxiety, perhaps more than dogs, and likely degrade physically. And because they are not studied as much as dogs, it’s a vicious cycle. I had a black cat (Pete) whose whiskers turned white as his health failed. Though I provided a loving and stress-free life, I believe his sickness stressed him psychologically, manifesting in this “greying” in the muzzle area and ear hairs. I’m sure of it because he was a very sensitive cat emotionally.
