Cats are the undisputed lords of the internet. They make almost anything funnier and cuter, and they incidentally make great pets and friends as well. We’d like to take this opportunity to pay homage to our internet overlords by showcasing some of the most interesting cat coat patterns that we’ve seen online.
Cats’ forms don’t vary very much, but their coats are as colorful and diverse as their claws are sharp. There are countless genes that govern different aspects of fur color, length, patterns and other properties. These mutations create the beautiful and unique patterns that we love, but they can sometimes also create unexpectedly interesting designs.
