Hello Gity, I'm Dr. Deb.
I recently came online and see that your question about Salt Paper hasn't been answered. I'm so sorry that you've had to wait for a response,but if you still need assistance, I'd like to help if I can.

It sounds like you're describing normal pigment changes which occurs as cat's mature if you're talking about the pads on the bottom of the feet. As long as there are no changes to the pad scaling or scabbing or redness.... then this would be considered normal and nothing to worry about.

The other pads which are 1/2 pink and 1/2 black may turn all black or they may remain the same color they are now.

I hope this helps to provide reassurance about this but, again, my apologies for the delayed reply. Deb
