Cute White Cat

Five Unique White Cat Facts

Choosing a name for your cat is only one aspect of pet-keeping. When considering bringing a cat into your life, it’s essential to research which one will be right for you.

White cats are an excellent choice of pet. Here are five facts about these gorgeous animals, serving to highlight just how remarkable they are.

1. Not All White Cats Are Albino

Contrary to common misconception- whilst albino cats are white cats, not all white cats are albino. Albino cats have ‘unpigmented’ pink eyes, whereas a white cat’s eye color can vary.

2. Deafness Is Common In White Cats

Deafness is common in white cats, due to sensory reasoning. Deaf white cats often have blue eyes, though this is not always the case.

In 1868 Charles Darwin stated in his book The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication that “white cats, if they have blue eyes, are almost always deaf.”

The white cat is not just a purr-retty face… they help deaf children and adults. Studies on deaf white cats are often used to improve deafness in humans.

3. The Persian Cat Is The Most Popular White Cat

White cats come in different breeds, fur lengths, shapes and sizes. The breed of your new cat will mostly likely affect which name you choose to suit it.

White ragdoll cats with their fluffy long fur, are very different from the gorgeous White Siamese cat with their dark facial markings, pale coats and large ears.

White Persian cats, with their flattened facial features and adorably grumpy expressions, differ also from the Turkish Van cat, known for their colored tails, love of swimming, and playing fetch.

4. Their Personalities Are Unique

A White Cat’s personality is not dictated by the color of their coat. Studies show that the personality of this furry friend is dependent on their breed and upbringing.

5. White Cats Are Supposed To Be Lucky

The white cat appears in the famous Chinese proverb of Deng Xiaoping, who stated “I do not care if it is a white cat or a black cat… It is a good cat so long as it catches mice”.

Also, according to US Folklore, white cats are supposed to be lucky, whilst black cats are unlucky. With your new pet, who knows, you could hit the jackpot.

White Cat Names

Summary

As you have seen, there are countless potential white cat names for your lovely white cat – looks, temperament and character are all key in making the choice.

Whether you’re looking for:

  • a strong and striking name like ‘Bolt’ or ‘Beowulf’
  • a name that highlights their gorgeous white coloring (‘Snowdrop’, ‘Blanche’, or ‘Blizzard’)
  • a light-hearted cute name (‘Oreo’, ‘Milky’ or ‘Coconut’)
  • or a name after a relevant loved character from a movie (‘Dumbledore’, ‘Elsa’, or ‘Belle’)
