In 1997, a British resident named David brought home a little kitten who was all-black at the time. For seven years, the pet and its owner lived a quiet life, but things soon changed. At some point, Scrappy’s fur began to become covered in white spots, and the man decided to take the animal to the vet.

The clinic learned that the cat had acquired a rather rare disease called vitiligo. It is a disorder of pigmentation, which is the disappearance of melanin in certain areas of the skin, in this case the coat. A cure for vitiligo has not yet been found, but it does not cause any problems for the wearer.
