Beautiful Copper Eyed Solid White Exotic Shorthair Female
Understanding the genetics of a solid white cat
Usually, solid white cats have the dominant white gene (W), and although there are other genes present for fur and eye color, the dominant gene wins out, and there is no pigmentation.
It’s very fascinating because the gene is actually masking the real color of the cat! When a dominant white kitten is born, they’ll often have a few hairs on their head that show their real color, and those hairs disappear before the cat turns a year of age.
A cat can also be white from the white spotting gene (S). While it creates visible white spots on bi-color cats and calicos, it also can create a white spot that covers the cat’s entire body. Graded on a scale from 1 to 10, 10 is completely white and extremely rare.
For a kitten to be solid white, at least one parent must be white.
