Black cat

A sitting black cat.

This is a list of black cats officially considered by the Cat Fanciers' Association, who recognize a total of 22 cat breeds that can come with solid black coats in a frequent or non-frequent way possible (some are exclusively black, others just come in the pelt color being black on separate occasions), even all-black fur pigmentation is slightly more prevalent in male cats than female cats.[1][2][3]

Important note[]

The color description for those breeds to be exceptional is:

Black: Dense coal black, sound from roots to tip of fur. Free from any tinge of rust on the ends. Nose leather: black. Paw pads: black or brown.
