Black and White Cats

Many people think that all black and white cats are tuxedo cats. But that is not accurate. Tuxedo cats should have a coat of solid black throughout most of their bodies, with white fur only occurring on their belly, chest, face/chin, and paws.



There are many variations of black and white felines, the tuxedo cat being one of them. Other bicolor patterns (which can occur in black and white) are:

    Black and White Cat
  • The cow cat. The so-called "cow cat" (also known as "moo cat" pattern). These cats have a similar pattern to that of Holstein cattle. The cow cat shows large patches of black over mostly solid white fur.

  • The black mask. This type of black and white cat looks like she is wearing a black mask over her head, hence the name. These cats may have a predominantly white body.

  • Mask and mantle cat. As the name suggests, this cat appears as though she is wearing a black mask and manle over mostly white fur.

  • Cap and saddle. These cats look as if they’re wearing a cap on their head. They also have a large patch on their backs. Again, these cats are mostly white.

Fun tidbits

  • Black and white felines are also known as magpie or piebald cats.

  • Tuxedo cats are also called billicats.

  • Tuxedo cats are not a cat breed.
