Hello everyone, I adopted Mimi 2 months ago and she’s been living a happy life with me since. Last week, I noticed that a patch of her white fur turned pink. My room has no pink object and this didn’t happen till last week. But I know she could and would groom that area of her fur. I googled it but there isn’t any good answer for it. Is there anyone know why Mimi’s fur turned pink out of nowhere? Thanks!
I will attach two pics. One is before she turned pink, the other one is after she turned pink.

You say there are no pink objects she could have rubbed against, but how about red? If a bit of red dye got transferred to her fur somehow it would show as pink, which is just a dilute red.

L liukimmy - You're not by any chance using Frontline Insecticide Spray or any similar grooming product, are you?

Actually, I do have some red objects in my room that she sometimes plays with! Is there any way to remove the pink color from her fur? Thanks.

I didn't before she turned pink. But yesterday I did apply advantage II revolution for flea treatment because I suspected she has flea.

There you have me. I don't know where you live, but where I am it's past midnight. I would suggest that you visit a pet store when they're open and get some cat-safe wipes. I just did a search on chewy.com for "cat wipes" and got this: cat wipes - Free shipping at Chewy.com it should give you an idea of what is available. We don't want to use something that might be toxic to your cat. The problem is, we don't know what kind of dye or pigment it is - it could be perfectly safe, or it could be dangerous for your cat to ingest by grooming herself.

Also, I don't know what 1CatOverTheLine 1CatOverTheLine is thinking of with the Frontline question, so it could be something totally different.
