19-Year-Old Black Cat Turns Into A “Nordic God” Due To A Rare Skin Condition


Back in 1997, a man bought a black kitty, not knowing that one day it will look like some icy Nordic god. His owner recalls the moment he met the cat: “Scrappy was sitting on his own and, though he was cute, we didn`t think others would regard him to be as cute as his siblings. I made the decision to take Scrappy as I knew he would be the last one to be taken, if at all,” the owner told MeowBox.

The cat’s coat started getting white when he was 7-years-old. Most likely, this is due to vitiligo, a skin condition that is extremely rare in cats. This doesn’t affect the kitty’s health in any way, and the 19-year-old senior cat is happy, healthy, and totally kicks ass! Yup, that’s where his name comes from: “Despite his age, he [picks scraps] with the neighbourhood cats… I guess you could say that he rules the street.”

The owner added: “Scrappy is a total diva! He isn’t the best cat to take photos of as most of the time he looks the other way or walks away… He can also be quite grumpy at times.” Nevertheless, the guy adores his pet and says Scrappy is very affectionate towards him. The man is the only person that gets to rub Scrappy’s belly, and, seeing how beautiful the grumpy ‘nordic god’ cat is, we couldn’t be more jealous!
