Tuxedo cat names often are chosen based on the look of the cat, and the resemblance of the black and white pattern to other animals or things.
Some appear to have a mask or eye patches, and resemble a raccoon or panda bear.
Others have mustaches or blotches on their faces.
Some of these kitties have blotches of black over white on their bodies that make them look like Holstein cows.
Some people will refer to any black and white cat as a tuxedo. Others reserve the term tuxedo for just those cats with specific coat patterns, especially those with white chest areas.
If you have a new tuxie at home and you're questioning what to name him or her, we have suggestions.
