19-Year-Old Black Cat Turns Into A Marble Beauty, Most Likely Due To A Rare Skin Condition

Way back in the year 1997, a man whose name is David bought a black kitty, not knowing that one day it will get marble-like fur His owner remembers the moment he met the cat: “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 explained to MeowBox.

The cat’s coat began getting white when he was 7-years-old. More than likely, this is due to vitiligo, which is a skin condition that is extremely rare in cats. This condition does not affect the kitty’s health in any way, and the 19-year-old senior cat is happy, healthy, and totally kicks butt! Yup, that’s exactly where his name comes from: “Despite his age, he [picks scraps] with the neighbourhood cats… I guess you could say that he rules the street.”

The owner went on to say: “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.” Nevertheless, this kitty’s human adores his pet and says Scrappy is very affectionate towards him. David is actually the only person that gets to rub Scrappy’s belly, and, seeing just how beautiful the grumpy ‘nordic god’ cat is, we’re sure there are many jealous fans out there!
