Doctor: What does it mean when a cat's nose is warm, not cool?

Hello, Doctor.

My other 14-year-old cat's nose is warm. Does that mean anything?

Thank you so much for your help.

I'm not the doctor (I'm sure he will be here soon) but as I understand it, nose warmth doesn't have much to do with health unless it's very atypical. It has more to do with room temperature.

Not really. If she's acting fine and eating well, it's nothing to worry about.

Doc, I have a black male cat......about 10 months old. Recently, his nose has had some bald spots on the outside of it, like it's losing skin or something. It changes day to day. Could this be from something he's rubbing against, or maybe he's scratching it? Besides that, his mood has be completely normal......eating, bathroom, social, and sleeping.

Could this be something?
