At 19 years old, Scrappy senior has transformed his once pure dark coat into a coat marked with snowflakes. When he was 7 years old, white spots began to appear in his black coat. They got more extensive as he got older, until they formed an incredible white speckled pattern.

In 1997, Scrappy was born from a litter of five and looked just like any other black kitten. The owners of Scrappy think their cat has a condition called vitiligo, which caused its black fur to turn white. The profile photo shows just how striking the pattern really is.

Scrappy is 19 years old, but this beautiful feline is a female with a big heart, who likes to spend time with master and his mother.. One of his favorite hobbies is to take a nap in the sun in the garden.

Vitiligo in cats is extremely rare and is caused by loss of pigment in the skin. Despite its unusual markings, Scrappy is in very good health for his age.
