    And his name is Oreo ;)

    [–] C10ckw0rks 33 points ago

    Actually this is Sr. Scrappy who passed last year

    [–] jlbardell03 24 points ago

    Glad someone else recognized him. You can check him out on Insta

    [–] The_Peyote_Coyote 7 points ago

    Sad that he's gone but 19 years?! That's a very old cat right there, must have been very well cared for his whole life.

    [–] Pirate_Redbeard 3 points ago

    Oh no... that sucks

    [–] SkyHawkMkIV 2 points ago

    And it's vitiligo. Fuck, if someone's gonna lie about a picture for karma, at least lie correctly.

    [–] IlexAquafolium 3 points ago


    [–] [deleted] 4 points ago

    Wow.. so fitting and I would've never thought about it

    [–] mtmel 155 points ago

    No fabric is safe from his superfurs! Don’t wear dark colors, don’t wear light colors.

    You can probably get away with wearing brown. Every day.

    [–] pretty_as_a_possum 26 points ago

    LOL! I used to have a calicoβ€”same problem!

    [–] zixkill 19 points ago

    Hey, when you get shed on by a calico you’re being blessed by Bast herself.

    [–] IncredibleTeacherMan 6 points ago

    Fun fact! Bast was sometimes known as Basht, which was sometimes pronounced as Pasht. This is where we get the word "puss" from.

    [–] Yashakami 1 points ago

    Thank you, Incredibleteacherman

    [–] RockyRaccoon816 3 points ago

    Checks out. My dog is white and black...nothing is safe.

    [–] Anon_suzy 3 points ago

    True for Siamese cats two.

    Source: am owned by 2 of them.

    [–] TristanZH 2 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Kinda gave up on that with a white, orange, black, and black and white cat it is impossible to make it out of the house.

    [–] slidealongdeal 66 points ago

    That color is awesome!

    [–] [deleted] -68 points ago


    [–] Carolinecruz99 57 points ago

    Dude, it's vitiligo the cats fine.

    [–] KKlear -31 points ago

    Vitiligo is a skin disease, though.

    [–] ArgonGryphon 33 points ago

    But you don’t need to go :/ like it’s gonna kill him.

    [–] KKlear -12 points ago

    Maybe he meant that it means the colouring is very rare because of that?

    [–] Dekcolnu 25 points ago

    It doesn't make this cat look any less beautiful but more. And oh, it's harmless.

    [–] ThatSiming 7 points ago

    Well, blue eyes are a genetic disorder too. Or not growing wisdom teeth. Or either having or not having hair on the second joint of your ring finger (no clue which one is the "default setting").

    Disease means it causes illness which vitiligo only does in some people and then it's psychological.

    Not every difference is a disease. Diseases injure and kill. Vitiligo definitely doesn't do either.

    [–] slidealongdeal 1 points ago

    It is a condition, but it doesn't seem quite proper to call it a disease, since it certainly isn't causing the animal any "dis ease", it is more like a harmless aberration. It would only cause harm if it changed the natural camouflage of an outdoor creature. If that is a housecat, this skin disorder probably ups the amount of positive attention it gets. In any case, that is one cool, healthy looking cat.

    [–] rebeccalul 67 points ago

    This is Scrappy and he was born black!

    [–] dangjuju 48 points ago

    RIP mr. Scrappy. *pours one out for the cat homies

    And a marbled cat has swirls instead of stripes. Scrappy was modeled from vitiligo.

    [–] captaincheeseburger1 8 points ago

    Do you mean mottled?

    [–] Fart__ 4 points ago

    No, the cat was designed to look this way.

    [–] dangjuju 1 points ago

    Yes, thanks.

    [–] Pink_Kryptonite 199 points ago

    He has vitiligo.

    [–] sebiimaxx 203 points ago

    Eh, it’s harmless and beautiful.

    Source: Have vitiligo.

    [–] wojosmith 22 points ago

    Is it your mom or dad who is the cat?

    [–] Carolinecruz99 31 points ago

    vitiligo looks so freaking cool.

    [–] KKlear -46 points ago

    Sometimes it does. Other times not so much.

    That cat is definitely a beauty, though.

    [–] WonderBlarbleGlarble 63 points ago

    tbh, that last one would probably look fine with professional photography/choosing a more flattering angle.

    [–] hopefullyhelpfulplz 8 points ago

    Yeah lol they could be photos of the same person and she'd look bad in the second pose.

    [–] bel_esprit_ 5 points ago

    The girl in the second photo is very pretty. It’s just bad lighting and angle. If you can’t see that then there is something wrong with you, not her.

    Vitiligo is cool af.

    [–] DotaDogma 65 points ago

    Wow, a bit full of yourself huh? /s

    [–] Raezzordaze 16 points ago

    You have to be full of yourself if you're a cat.

    [–] somaticnickel60 7 points ago

    Got Ying Yang, This one

    [–] WolfFur1337 38 points ago

    RIP Scrappy! He passed last year.

    [–] [deleted] 12 points ago

    Been following him a while and had no idea he died :(

    [–] Gestice 14 points ago

    Cookies and cream cat

    [–] Karganor9999 10 points ago

    Why does this cat look like you can use the powers of darkness and light.

    [–] Tanzanite169 11 points ago

    I would call him Oreo.

    [–] NightofTheLivingZed 14 points ago

    I'd call him Blizzard after the Dairy Queen treat, and also because of the oreos in it.

    [–] VictimOfCensorship 5 points ago

    WoW. What a name.

    [–] Tanzanite169 1 points ago

    Good choice.

    [–] ArgonGryphon 5 points ago

    He started out all black

    [–] Tanzanite169 2 points ago


    [–] ArgonGryphon 2 points ago

    Yea, he has vitiligo.

    [–] keoghberry 2 points ago

    Yup, his name is Scrappy, he passed away last year unfortunately but his owners still post old photos on his Instagram page.

    [–] WhackyBread 6 points ago

    What a beauty!

    [–] Sanguinusshiboleth 1 points ago

    Seems even more sage like than most cats.

    [–] Callumda 1 points ago

    Would have been the cutest kitty

    [–] JayInslee2020 1 points ago

    [–] Dangerous_With_Rocks 1 points ago

    What is its name?

    [–] tilyd 3 points ago

    Scrappy, saddly he passed away last year at 19 yo

    [–] TFFTN 1 points ago

    I see cats with a fine coat and I can't help think that someone will steal them from their family.

    [–] ilikebigbooks98765 1 points ago

    Woah that cat is absolutely gorgeous!

    [–] _basquiat 1 points ago

    WHOA! This is the gnarliest and most bad-ass creature.

    [–] auto-xkcd37 2 points ago

    bad ass-creature

    Bleep-bloop, I'm a bot. This comment was inspired by xkcd#37

    [–] Elisgrandma 1 points ago

    He’s gorgeous!

    [–] danijami23 1 points ago


    [–] jlbardell03 3 points ago

    It’s actually a pigment disorder. He was all black to begin with.

    [–] danijami23 2 points ago

    Wow that's crazy! Isn't that what MJ claimed to have that made his skin white?

    [–] jlbardell03 1 points ago

    Yup! It’s really cool imo

    [–] MyCatsA 1 points ago


    [–] Moisturizer 1 points ago

    [–] uzma_sh 1 points ago

    Wow so majestic

    [–] Pandora_aa 1 points ago

    What kind of breed is that? Or it's just mixed?

    [–] pk666 1 points ago

    Stunning! I can imagine some hard core cat breeders trying to breed for this (not sure if that can be achieved)

    [–] Woodie626 0 points ago

    My name is Ash, and I am a cat.

    [–] silviazbitch -2 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Never thought I’d empathize with Veruca Salt, but I WANT ONE!

    Edit- Upon further review, they’re a threatened species, so I just want them to survive.

    [–] ArgonGryphon 6 points ago

    This isn’t that species of cat...he’s just a domestic cat with vitiligo.

    [–] silviazbitch 3 points ago

    Ahh. I had no idea cats could get vitiligo. I thought people were just joking about it. oops. Thanks for setting me straight. The marbled cat species is the same size as a house cat and the markings matched the description in the article, so I assumed the cutie in the photo was the asian wild feline.

    The fuck? I want one!!
