Why would people think that this cat, adorably named Scrappy, is a mythological being? This 19-year-old feline was born black.Seven years after bringing Scrappy into his home, David Platt noticed that Scrappy’s fur was turning white in splotches all over his little cat body.
When he was seven, my mum was looking after him and rang me to say a white patch had appeared on his head. In the next few years, Scrappy began to get more and more white patches, then it slowed down. But in the last three or four years it has started again.”
After some investigation, they realized that Scrappy had a condition called vitiligo, in which the different colors of his skin are losing pigment, causing his fur to turn white as well.The beautiful cat has amassed a large following on Instagram and has fans all across the globe. So, why do people think he is a mythological being? Maybe because it is fun to believe in magic. His incredible coat sure is amazing enough to be right out of an ancient story! Without the magic of the internet, we may have never seen a cat like this! We are in love with kitty with the unique coat!
