Beautiful things always come in surprise packages.

Nicole Böhm found a pair of kitten siblings residing in one of Germany’s dirty farm and immediately rescued them from their dire situation. When she first met them, they were a pair of black-and-white creatures.

But little did she know, that wasn’t going to last for long!

“She had a tuxedo coat like her sister. Nothing unusual,” Böhm said. “The changing began about one year after birth.”

Böhm then noticed it, a few strands of white fur on Elli’s black coat.

“It was just a little white spot on her back,” Böhm said. “I didn’t know why, so I took her to the vet.”

It was only when she was thoroughly checked that she was diagnosed with vitiligo. This is a rare condition that results in a loss of pigmentation and hair. Eventually, this leads to white patches of skin. While this usually meant some kind of health issue, Elli was actually very healthy.

But Böhm had no idea that the little condition would evolve into something so stunning.

In the course of a few months, the black patches started turning into white.

“I was surprised,” she said. “I’m still surprised.”

No matter how much Elli changed physically, she stayed the same adorable cat.

“Her personality is the same as ever. It doesn’t matter to her,” Böhm said. “She is as cute and lovely and as playful as the first day.”

And it shows for her sister loves her just as much as the first day when Böhm found her.

While Elli looks more and more beautiful each day with her transformation, what counts is how happy and healthy she is.

Even though Böhm said Elli still continues to change, she sincerely believes that some of the black spots on her face will never disappear.

Just look at her amazing transformation!

No wonder Böhm is so proud to have Elli as her pet! To say she’s amazed would be an understatement.

“Her changing still goes on every day, and I love her more and more,” she said.
