Why would my kitten's (less than a year old) fur be changing color to white?

she got knicked by a pickup and has been limping. I think she may have broken something, but why would her fur be turning white?

    I don't think the two are related. But, the bigger issue here is that your kitten is injured and needs to go to the vet to find out why she is limping. You're right. She may have a broken leg which could become infected and be fatal. She could also be disabled for the rest of her life. After that, you might want to consider keeping her indoors and safe. If she is limping and in pain, it's only right to take her to the vet and have her checked out.

    Yes get her Vet Help ASAP! The fur changing colors can be due to natural causes, stress and well shedding and all that is normal. my Russian blue recently started tolose he fur down the middle of her back and white fur mixed with her smokey gray grew back so she looked like a gray skunk. Also if cats lick themselves to much *tongue is sandpaper like* it can cause hair tobe ripped from the root and some undercoats are always lighter color then top coat on cats and dogs. So dont worry about fur changing colors ... only about the injured leg issue.
