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:
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.
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.
