This cat has been left looks like a DALMATIAN after developing vitiligo at a young age.
Moggy Elli, now three, was diagnosed with the skin pigmentation disorder when she was 18 months old – a few months after her owner, Nicole Böhm, 39 from Rauenberg, Germany, noticed a change in her fur.
Now the pussy cat, who was originally mainly black with a white tuxedo like sister Rosie, has been left looking more like a spotty dog.
Sales department worker Nicole said: “Elli’s fur started changing in April 2017 with a little white spot on her back.
“At first I thought it was a little bit of lint, but it turned out it was her real fur.
“The vitiligo has been a slow process over the last two years; it’s still developing even now.
“Luckily, it doesn’t affect her in any way than the way she looks – she’s still as happy and playful as always!”
