Ah-ha! Well in that case I have yet another link for you on the subject of black cats turning reddish brown: http://www.cat-world.com.au/why-do-s...h-brown-colour (short version: may have something to do with an amino acid called tyrosine).

I do find this stuff quite fascinating. Good luck at the vets!
