Black Cat Becomes Marbled Due To Rare Skin Condition

December 13, 2016

Meet 19-year old Scrappy (I've always wanted a dog with an underbite named Scrappy). Scrappy was originally an all black cat but has since become marbled due to vitiligo, a condition that causes the loss of skin pigment in patches but is extremely rare in cats. Scrappy's got it though, and this is what he looks like now. Kind of like a tortoiseshell cat but all black and white. Man, I wish I was a cool cat. I'd even settle for being an uncool cat. I don't care, I just want my mom to stop making that face she does when she catches me eating Fancy Feast.

Keep going for a bunch more shots of the handsome devil.

Thanks to Lydia, who agrees that guy is awful dapper looking for a cat named scrappy.

  • I'm disappointed, I read "marbled cat" and expected to see a cat turned to stone and embedded in my counter top.

  • Meh

    How do you fact check this? One can literally take any picture of a black cat. I have one.

    This guy is literally the cat's meow (sorry). Sure hope no one gets the idea to start breeding experiments for a coat like that.

    That's interesting. He looks super tough and badass with the new coloring.

    looks like he's just got snow on him and gives a fuck less about it.

    still a badass cat. now add heterochromia and this cat would be worth a billion dollars

  • 19!
    That is one old cat.
    And beautiful too.
    I'm in love.

    This story seems utterly incomplete without pictures from when it used to be completely black.

  • Geekologie

    There I added one.

    And how am I supposed to know that's the same cat? Kidding. I was more complaining about the boredpanda.com article you linked didn't include it.
