Update on Jackson, KittyKind Cat Rescue: Unbelievable transformation from cat to polecat

What is the difference between a black cat and a skunk? A white strip down the back! In fact, did you know that a skunk is also called a polecat?


If you are not convinced, take a look once again at Jackson, the orphaned black kitten KittyKind volunteer Susan saved from certain death. When we last saw Jackson, he was a completely black cat. In the past couple of weeks, however, he has been developing a white stripe down his back. He looks more like skunk than a cat.

Jackson’s veterinarian declared that he has never witnessed this kind of phenomenon before.

Skunk, cat, polecat, or whatever, Action Jackson, aka Pepé Le Pew, is wonderfully well.

    Our orphaned kitten has exactly the same stripes.

  4. Sarah Says:

    It is a form of vitiligo and it may progress to the rest of the body, turning him slowly gray. By the way, a polecat is a type of ferret/stoat and is not the same as a skunk.

    I am getting a new kitten in 3 weeks and he has this unusual marking on his back but not in a stripe. I dont know how to post a pic.
