I was thinking. . .

I was thinking. . . do all orange tiger-kitties have dirty-looking spots on the bridge of the nose?

Thinking very hard.
I keep myself very, very clean, but I can really only get at the bridge of my nose with my arm.

Do you see my dirty-looking spot?
What about you guys? Do any of you have these gray patches?

Do these dirty spots lead to baths? I've heard of those, and I don't want one!

Concerned about my Sharp Image,

Tober

PS--Check out those fabulous whiskers in the bottom shot!

Oh, Tober, we hope it won't lead to a bath for you. But we don't see a dirty spot on your nose, so we don't see a problem.

Those really are some fabulus whiskers! We don't see any dirty spots. Are you sure those aren't just gray furs?

Riley is napping ... shhh ... I'll sneak over and take a look ...

Nope, just dark orange ...

You don't need a bath ... have them get some baby wipey things .. they have them at the pet store for doggies ... I used them on Riley when I was a kitten.

I won't mention where I used them ..

JC has it right. You need to ask someone to take a baby wipe to clean off the top of your nose. Usually, kitties will get that if they eat a lot of wet food. Kitties who eat dry generally don't get nose freckles.

If not a baby wipe, ask one of your staff to take a warm wash cloth to clean you up. Maybe you'll just need to be spiffed up every week or so. Regardless, you are adorable!

Oh Tober, I sure hope they don't give you a bath. It's a terrible, awful, horrible thing. I've had two of them and I have nightmares about both!

That's on of the good things about being black. My dirt doesn't show.

Tober, we looked at the picture really close and don't think it is dirt - it is probably a birthmark or something - yeah, that is it! That way you don't need a bath! You might as your people to try using a kitty bath wipe - then you would know for sure. I think that all kitties have problems with that spot, but honestly it could just be the way your fur is right there - we had an orange kitty when I was growing up and she had one dark spot on her (not her nose though) and it was not dirty, just darker for some reason. I hope that you don't end up getting a bath though! You look very clean to me!

Tober, my sister Pandora is a orange tabby like you, and she has lots of spots. My mum says they're age spots because she is 10, so she has a lot of them now. I think they look nice, and I know they've never led to baths for Pandora.

And those are some fabulous whiskers! I do wish I had white whiskers, but mine are black just like me. :)

Great6 whisker you of the dirty nose spots variety.
With whiskers like that whats a tiny bit of scruffy on your nose.

Tober you are very handsome in these pictures. I don't see any dirty spots on you either.
