Here is a cat that is neither completely white nor does it have a typical calico coat. I’m not sure if the cat coat could be still called calico in this case, what do you think? I am just sure about one thing, it’s a very beautiful cat. In the past I uploaded two other photos of the same cat here and here to my cat photo collection.

I know cats with pigmentation on the head and tail only are called “the van pattern”. It’s seen in the Turkish Van breed and occasionally in random bred cats. I don’t know how the description of the specific colors and patterns would fit into that, though.
Wow. You’re right… I googled for images with the search query “the van pattern” and there are lots of cats with similar-looking fur then. I will add this to the tags so when I photograph similar looking cats, I have it all sorted. Learned a lot from other bloggers.. back then I didn’t even know what tuxedo, calico or bicolor fur would mean as I didn’t know the vocabulary until someone told me. You helped me too now because I am always curious how certain fur patterns would be called in English. 🙂 And I like the van pattern.
Right? I just thought it’s such a cute cat 🙂
🙂 Yes, Dennis. That is one beautiful cat and he or she looked as though they enjoyed having their photograph taken.
Yes, this cat was less shy than others. It actually followed me for a while and made miaow miaow as you can see in the following picture below… I thought the cat liked me… 😀
