Cats are beautiful!

Adopt a Shelter Cat Month is not over yet! There is still plenty of time to find your purrrfect feline friend and join the celebration!

Humans are pretty boring, our skin is usually only a solid color or a solid color with small brown spots. Cats’ coats on the other hand can be found in a wide variety of colors and patterns. Check out your local animal shelter and you will see a wide variety of grays, whites, blacks, reds, browns, and oranges. Some kitties even have more than one color! All of those colors are even further diversified by hair length and color patterns. Some of the most common color patterns are:

  • Solid – just one color
  • Classic Tabby – Swirl pattern on body with stripes on forehead, legs, and tail.
  • Mackerel Tabby – Stripes all over.
  • Spotted Tabby – Spotted pattern on body with stripes on forehead, legs, and tail.
  • Pointed – Pale body with a darker color over the ears, face, legs, and tail.
  • Calico – Orange, black, and white
  • Tortishell – Orange and black
  • Tuxedo – Mostly black with a white chest and neck.

Mouse over the photos in the gallery below to see some examples of these pawsome kitty color patterns.
