According to, there’s no need to worry, Scrappy is perfectly healthy overall. He began developing white spots at 7-years-old even though he was born as a completely black kitty. Veterinarians believe that he has a very rare condition for cats – vitiligo. For a while, his fur and skin seemed to change rapidly, but now, the change has slowed at 18-years-old.

Scrappy’s Facebook page, which has over 67,000 followers, provides more photos for fans who can’t get enough of this lovable oddity. His motley pattern is stunning and almost reminiscent of cookies and cream ice cream.

Fans can’t help but shower Scrappy with compliments. Facebook user wrote Laura Jaudon Booth, “Scrappy, you took my breath away at first glance. Never have I seen a more gorgeous markings on a cat. Wow….just wow.”

Despite his age, Scrappy still loves to play and act like a kitten. Hopefully he continues to stay a “kitten at heart,” so we can all enjoy him for years to come.
