Gray And White Cat Names

Gray And White Cat

Gray and white, or ‘bicolor’ cats are pretty common, and they are some of the most adorable cats around!

Their patterns range from ‘Turkish Van’ pattern, with color only on the crown of the head and the tail, to ‘Magpie’, with random splashes of color.

Chelsea Clinton’s cat ‘Socks’ had white-colored feet, giving the impression he was wearing socks!

The best way to name a gray and white cat is to think of lots of things associated with those colors, such as ‘Charlie Chaplin’, whose films were in gray and white, and ‘Cruella’, from ‘101 Dalmatians’.

It could also be useful to use their patterns as a prompt for their name, for example a cat with dark gray fur on their feet could be named ‘Blackboot’.
