    Hey there,

    I’m sorry to trouble but my cat has all of a sudden got a white bald line on her nose leading from her eye. I’m worried in case it has been caused by unknown problems with her eye, or could she have been scratched by another cat? She’s not bled or had a scab so it’s just odd that this white line has appeared.

    Does anyone know what might have caused this or if it’s anything to worry about? Has your cat ever had something like this? I’ve attached a picture I’ve just taken of Pumpkin for you to see.

    Thanks in advance for any and all help!

    Sarah

    It could be a scratch but it would be best if you got it checked by your vet to be sure. It doesn't look significant enough to be an emergency but I still want it looked at in case her eye has been scratched too.

    It doesnt look like a dangerous scratch but it does look like a scratch. Maybe you should seek a vet just in case :)
