what would you class Glamorous's "fur color" as? she's a Domestic Shorthair, but in the "cat page's, am unsure what to put as "fur color".

Probably Bicolored(Mask-and-Mantle). Tuxedo is when the cat is black all over except for white under neck and on paws and some times nose area.

Black/White Bicolor. Tuxedo is not the proper label. Any cat that is 2 solid colors is a bicolor - one color has to be white (in any amount); the other is either black, blue, red, cream, chocolate, lilac (in any amount).

The only exception would be the "Van" cats - color is restricted to top of head, tail and one or two body spots. If its more color then that, its a bicolor.

Also the other extreme of almost all color and a very small amount of white would not be considered a bicolor but a solid color (say black) with a locket of white on the chest or some white toes.

Even a "Van" would still be a bicolor, you'd just use the term Van or Van Bicolor.

OK, so this may sound stupid, but what about cats (like my Jordan & maggie) who are white with tabby markings?
post #12 of 15
If they are white with tabby markings then they would be classifed as a Tabby with White.

For example (Maine coon classes):

Solid - black, blue, white, etc.
Bicolor - black/white, blue/white, etc.
Tabby - brown, blue, red, silver
Tabby/White - brown, blue, red, silver

Does that help?
