There are a number of reasons a cat's fur can change color. Persians, for instance are born white and develop their fur color as they mature. As a cat ages, it's fur can change 'tint'. Having said that, a friend whose cat underwent chemo told me his cat developed white and orange patches of fur as his fur regrew where he'd previously been gray. If you suspect that your cat's fur color is changing due to health and not maturity, your only option is to get him to the vet. Stress is not healthy for anyone, human or animal. If it is a health issue, his fur color change may only be the "tip of the iceberg" and he would benefit from seeing his vet.

Will Siamese and Persian cats are born Wight and only later change color.
Some cats the older the cat becomes the darker or lighter he can become.
