- Cat lovers have got to check out this amazing Guide to Housecat Coat Colors and Patterns poster. It shows an enormous range of housecat coat and eye colors and patterns. The chart includes groupings of colors and patterns along with lots of fascinating tidbits about the inheritance of these traits. It’s quite a big chart (click on the image to see it full size), so it may take you a while to really pore over it but you’ll be fascinated.
We enjoyed learning about the the cats who have a white ticked undercoat. One of our teenage kitties, Tobia, is a "black smoke" cat - his fur is black, but bright white underneath, and he has black rings around his tail. It's very unusual!
What kind of coat does your cat have?
