When you bring a cat into your life, you expect their fur to remain the same color throughout their lifespan. However, David was in for a surprise when his black cat, Scrappy, began developing white patches in his coat as he turned seven years old. This change in fur color was due to vitiligo, a rare skin condition that causes unique marbling patterns in feline fur. Despite the diagnosis, Scrappy remains a happy and healthy senior cat who loves to pick fights with other neighborhood cats and still comes home with a few scratches at 19 years old. David documents Scrappy’s daily life and unique beauty, even though Scrappy doesn’t always cooperate for photos. Thousands of people have fallen in love with Scrappy’s unusual fur pattern and zest for life.
