Tuxedo Cat Names

There’s something simply special about a Tuxedo cat. The first thing you notice is their beautiful black and white coat, with stunning markings and pattern. But so many admire the Tuxedo cat’s wonderful, friendly personality and intelligence. This is one cat who will always be able to figure out how to open doors or do other things that will surprise you with their “smarts.”

Like tabby, “tuxedo” describes a bi-color pattern that can occur in numerous breeds of cats. Most tuxedo cats are black and white, with the next most common combination being gray and white. Bi-color cats can be spotted or striped, but it is the bib-and-tucker-like distribution of colors that sets the tuxedo apart. Those who prize tuxedos look for white on the face, chest and paws and often favor cats with the most symmetrical markings. American and British Shorthairs, Scottish Folds and Persian cats are among the breeds where handsome tuxedo cats can be found.
Although the pattern crosses a variety of breed lines, tuxedo cat lovers have some consistent things to say about the behavior of tuxedos, whatever the origins. Observers find tuxedos attentive, extroverted and intelligent. Although they are not automatic lap-grabbers, tuxedos tend to like spending lots of time around their owners and have a high degree of playful curiosity. In their permanent formal-wear, tuxedo cats seem to imitate the dispositions of good formal party guests: confident, sociable, gregarious and patient with minor irritants. More than one owner has commented on a unique sweetness of character that seems to go with perpetual party dress.

Remember that bi-color cats come in a number of patterns, and not all black-and-white combos qualify as tuxedo. A white cat covered with black spots, for instance, is more likely to be called a “cow cat.” Smallish black markings on a predominantly-white cat’s head and shoulders may be dismissed as “mask and mantle” or “cap and saddle.” Although tuxedo is a color-blend rather than a breed, your true tuxedo should appear to be wearing a jacket, or perhaps full evening dress, even if a bit rakishly.

Famous fictional tuxedo cats range from Sylvester of Bugs Bunny fame to The Cat in the Hat (himself!) and Mr. Mestofellees, one of the Jellicle cats of T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Guide to Practical Cats and a star of “Cats,” the Broadway musical to historical favorites Felix the Cat and Puss in Boots. Figaro, owned by the woodcarver who created Pinocchio, completes this wide-ranging list of famous cats. Well-known owners of tuxedo cats are said to include William Shakespeare, Ludwig Beethoven, Sir Isaac Newton and, more recently, President Bill Clinton and his family.
