Designer cat!

Bet you any money somebody starts collecting cats with that condition to try to make them a breed.

I would hope no one would want to purposely breed a cat with the conditions. There can be underlying conditions, or you are more prone to.

One of my grandfather's had vitiligo, he had no pigment, lost it at a young age, and always used sunscreen, even before it became the thing to do. Wore long sleeves in summer. A baseball style hat with cloth that covered his neck. He, and the rest of the family are fair skinned so you really couldn't tell he had the condition. He did though have pernicious anemia and diabetes and vitamin K deficiency, but lived to a relatively healthy 96 because he took care of himself well.
Cut and pasted from online source:
People with vitiligo are also somewhat more prone to other autoimmune diseases, such as alopecia areata, autoimmune thyroid disorders, Addison's disease, pernicious anemia, and diabetes mellitus.

Beautiful cat though, I certainly wouldn't reject such a beauty. Just hope no one tries to breed the problem. There are enough problems with breeding some pure breds that only cause problems for the animal. Mostly Persians and the flat faces, don't get me started on dogs.

The Lykoi (werewolf cat) and Sphinx cats are the results of natural mutations, which humans decided to exploit.

Besides the lack of fur, not sure if the Lykoi breed has any specific health issues. But it certainly costs a lot, with kittens selling for over a thousand dollars.

Is it ethical? Who knows.
