White cats tend to be quite rare. This is because they have to have the genetics that eliminates all the other potential coat colors – and that is unusual. There are a number of specific cat breeds that give rise to white-coated cats, although in theory, a pure white coat cat is possible even with your average cat – it just doesn’t happen very often or the coat is actually a mix of colors rather than purely one color.
The breeds that tend to produce white cats are Devon Rex, Persian, Siamese, Turkish Angora, and American Shorthair. If you have a white cat from any of these breeds then you might be looking for a white cat names list to help you name your kitten. Check out our list for inspiration :
