The Urban Zoo realizes the cat is a popular household pet. Customers seeking companionship or a family pet may find the cat an ideal animal. Today most cats are domesticated varieties stemming from the homogeneous breeds known as domestic longhair and domestic shorthair. Domestic cats, be it longhair or shorthair, vary in their colours and fur-coat patterns. It should be noted that different colours and fur-coat patterns on cats are manifestations of their physical traits and should not be mistaken for a particular breed of cat.

Typical Cat Coat Colours and Patterns

Colorpoint - has dark colours on the face, ears, feet, and tail, with a lighter rendering of these same dark colours on the rest of the body -these physical properties aren't exclusive to Siamese cats... they are known to surface in domesticated cats too.

Tabby - a distinctive coat that features stripes, dots, or swirling patterns, usually together with an "M" mark on its forehead.

Tricolor - usually consists of three colours: reddish colour; white and one other colour (black, blue or brown) (also called Calico coat)

Bicolor - has white fur combined with fur of some other color, for example black or tabby. There are various patterns of bicolor cat. These range from Van pattern (color on the crown of the head and the tail only) through to solid color with a throat locket. The tuxedo pattern is one of many possible bicolor patterns.

Turtoiseshell - has a jumble of random red (or cream) and black (or blue ) patches blotched throughout fur... combinations vary (a bicolour version)

Tuxedo - overall black with some white on chest... and/or white markings on face, legs or paws (a bicolour version)

Van - The crown of the head and tail are the only coloured parts of the body (a bicolour version)

White - The gene that causes a cat to have a white coat is a dominant masking gene. As a result, the cat will have an underlying coat colour and pattern. When the dominant white gene is present, however, that pattern will not be expressed. A cat that is homozygous (WW) or heterozygous (Ww) for this gene will have a white coat despite the underlying pattern/colour.

Cats display special characteristics and have specific needs that may be more acceptable to certain lifestyles and various personal pet preferences. Once customers have researched their feline's needs, our competent staff will be happy to suggest our various animal care products for nurturing a pet cat.
