Ive always wondered what breeds of cats are white with short hair. The only kittens Ive ever had are from the animal shelter but I would really like an all white cat with short hair in the future. What breeds should I look for?

If you're looking for a specific breed, you can get white British Shorthairs. However, I've seen several white, shorthaired mix-breed cats at my local shelter.

I did a quick search on petfinder for cats in your area. These are only a few of the many that are available! www.petfinder.org

An all white kitty that looks like she has different colored eyes: :)

There's also a white Oriental, Orientals being very much like the Siamese except with solid coat patterns instead of color pointed. My Siamese actually is half white Oriental... his mom was a white Oriental, and some of his littermates were white, as well. Very beautiful cats :)

white cats

White is a dominant gene in cats, so it is usually pretty easy to find solid white cats at your local shelter; Petfinders is a great idea too!

Cheers,

I have an-all white kitty (Snow Plough) with short hair. I know of only a few all white cats that are thorough-breds, and most of them have a distinctive appearance. I doubt that you will find them at a local animal shelter. As best I can tell Snow cat is a Domestic Short Hair (DSH). I originally adopted him from our local animal shelter last October.
