He's stunning! I love the flashy black and whites. Tuxedo cats are still Bi - colours, just one with a specific amount of white, genetically they are the same - white spotting gene.

Yay!  An excuse to show more pictures of Shadow!

She's the wrong color but she has the traditional tuxedo pattern.

I'm amazed this one turned out so well.  She was fussing big time while I was trying to focus the camera.


Run away!  Or not.


A little blurry but still cute.  Every cat in the house loves that blanket, we don't know why.

Thanks bemba! I think he's quite handsome. Is flashy a technical term or just an adjective? I like it.

Pretty. Why is grey called blue?

It's just a bit of cat terminology. Cat colors were developed to be more specific, to distinguish between various shades of a color that could otherwise be grouped together as one color. For example, three different cat colors that could be described as "grey" are silver, blue, and smoke (smoke is technically a silver coat tipped in black, but with the overall appearance of a dark, almost charcoley grey). Similarly, cats commonly called "ginger" or "orange" can be grouped into cream and red, where cream is the dilute for red.

OK glad I don't need to get glasses because what I'm seeing as grey others see as blue.

I was inspired to start this thread because I saw one on black and white tux kitties, and I have a bicolor black and white, and had no where to post her!



As a kitten, she had a fascination with fire. She would even run through this thing when it was on!!!


Watching over the budgies. Yeah, right.


Eating with her sisters.


Turkey impression.


She loves laundry.
Your baby girl is amazing! And she sounds like she's a lot of fun, too.

I'm sorry for the loss of your sweet kitty. Certainly a beautiful cat.
Thank you - we were devastated to lose him that young to a dreadful disease. He was such a sweet and mellow guy.:angel:
