100+ Best Tuxedo Cat Names For Black And White Cats

Your black and white companion deserves a name as fantastic as they are.

Tuxedo cats are known for their bi-colored coats, which can make your cat look like it is wearing a tiny cat tuxedo.

Tuxedo cats are not always black and white; they can also be, silver, ginger, and even tortoiseshell with white patches. A tuxedo cat is not a breed but rather classified by their bi-color markings, which is common.

Tuxedo kittens or 'tuxies' are a very friendly, easy-going, and relaxed breed of cat that are quite common. Tuxies have been a part of our culture since ancient times. Indeed, tuxies were worshipped as Egyptian goddesses in ancient Egypt.  Today they still feature in popular culture, for example, the song 'Betty Boop' by Charlie Puth is dedicated to a black and white cat, 'Felix the Cat". The popularity of tuxies is partly derived from their mythical quality - it is believed that tuxies become invisible during the vernal equinox because of their black and white color.  To celebrate tuxies, see our list of fantastic names below.
