Tuxedo Cat

A tuxedo cat, known as the Felix cat in the U.K., is any cat that has a black and white coat. These bi-colored cats, known for their good looks, have a sharp black-and-white contrast that makes them look like they are wearing little tuxedos. The tuxedo coat pattern may occur in different breeds, including the American Shorthair, Turkish Van, Turkish Angora, British Shorthair, and Scottish Fold. Although their appearance is masculine, tuxedo cats have almost equal percentages of males and females.

Tuxedo Cat Colors

A tuxedo cat may have any combination of black and white coats, but typically, its body is black while its paws, belly, throat, and chest are white. Other cats with bicolor coat exhibiting blue/gray and white or orange/red and white are not usually called tuxedo cats. The term ‘tuxedo’ is used in the U.S. to refer to a black and white coat.

Other variations of the tuxedo coat include the “black-masked” cats that have black fur over their eyes and the entire head. There is another infamous variation, called the ‘Kitler’, which has a black smudge under its nose, resembling the mustache of Adolf Hitler.
