When you become a cat owner, you expect your feline friend’s fur color to remain the same throughout its life. However, one man named David was in for a surprise when Scrappy, his beloved black cat, began developing white patches among his dark coat at the age of seven. This unique phenomenon is likely a result of vitiligo, a rare skin condition that causes marbling in feline fur. Despite the diagnosis, Scrappy is a happy and healthy 19-year-old cat who still picks fights with other neighborhood cats. David documents his furry friend’s daily life and unusual appearance, though Scrappy is not always the most cooperative when it comes to taking photos. Nevertheless, people across the internet can’t help but fawn over Scrappy and his zest for life. Take a look at how he looked before and after his transformation:
On the left, you can see me at the sweet age of 5, full of innocence and curiosity about the world around me. On the right, I’m all grown up at 17, ready to take on all the challenges that life has in store for me. It’s amazing how time flies and how much we can change as we grow older. Looking back, I’m grateful for all the experiences that have shaped me into the person I am today.
