Looks like the bottom part, which is the oldest, is bleached from the sun or urine or both.

It's just because its graying out. The process usually starts with the base of the tail and on the forehead.

I guess I assumed the tail would lighten from the base not the tip.

Yes, the greying will start at the bottom of the tail and lighten from bottom up. The face will grey first too. I love this stage of grey. :-) i think its so attractive.

Guess I should have clarified lol When I said base I did mean the tip/end. But you got the point anyway.

Huh. Well fancy that. I learned something new today.
