Rare Skin Condition Turns 19-Year-Old Black Cat's Fur Into A Masterpiece
19 years ago, in 1997 a man named David decided to buy a black kitty that later turned out to become an absolute beauty with marble-like fur, and he remembers exactly how it happened :
“Scrappy was sitting on his own and, though he was cute, we didn`t think others would regard him to be as cute as his siblings. I made the decision to take Scrappy as I knew he would be the last one to be taken, if at all,” David told MeowBow.
The condition this beautiful cat most likely has is called vitiligo, it's a condition that is very rare in cats. It started when the cat was 7-years old, and fortunately, it didn't affect his health at all :
“Despite his age, he [picks scraps] with the neighbourhood cats… I guess you could say that he rules the street.”
The owner also added :
“Scrappy is a total diva! He isn’t the best cat to take photos of as most of the time he looks the other way or walks away… He can also be quite grumpy at times.”
