So Nicole took her to the vet to find out what was going on. She was surprised to learn that Elli had vitiligo, a very rare skin condition that affects the skin and fur. Luckily the effect is purely aesthetic, so doesn’t bother the cat at all.
A year after Elli came into Nicole’s life her black and white coat had turned into a dazzling display of dappled grays.
Even though Elli’s coat is constantly changing, her personality is still as gorgeous a sever.
