I've had my cat for about two weeks now, the Vets estimated that he is around 6 months old (i rescued him from being feral)

He has had some medical issues already with his bowel that he is making progress with.

When I first had him, i started noticing that after he ate, he had a dirty face which i assumed was due to him being a messy eater, he had a very faint black moustache appear after eating in the morning that would stay during the day but be gone by the next morning before he had his breakfast but now it's gotten bigger, darker and moved up from just his mouth to under his nose, but it's not coming out of his nose, I try and rub it off and nothing comes off at all. I'm kinda worried about it but it doesn't seem like any type of infection or anything and with his other issue, stress will undo all the progress he's made so far if i take him back to the vet to get it looked at.

    please update your question after the visit to the vet,to me it looks like it is swollen so it might be an allergic reaction or a problem in the mouth of your cat. Oct 6 '18 at 7:33

    Have a look at this post. The skin looks very similar and the problem was caused by an allergy.

  • Hello, thank you for the replies they did help, it was dirt sticking to the liquid medication and oil that I had to give him and it was building up, all I had to do was dry it out and chip it off over a week and it didn't come back.
