Cats can have different coat colours, including pure white and white with another colour (bi-coloured). There are also cats that are born as albinos; these cats have complete lack of pigmentation. Some cats are born pure white and develop their colour as they mature; this is true for most colourpoint breeds like the Siamese and Birman.
We have listed the most popular cat breeds that may have natural solid white or predominantly white coat colour. Incidentally, white cats are quite often the cats with blue eyes.
