These cats have coats of a single colour, with no markings or shading. They are all identical in type.
The brilliant copper, orange or deep gold eyes of this breed are set in a black or chocolate coat, evenly intermingled with rich and pale red or a coat of intermingled lilac and cream.
This British breed is patched with a solid colour and white, between one-third and two-thirds of the coat being white. It has copper, orange or deep gold eyes.
The coat of the Tortie and White consists of bright clear patches of: black or chocolate, rich red and pale red and white; or blue or lilac, cream and white. The eyes, as before, are copper, orange, or deep gold.
In the British Tabbies the markings show up clearly on the short coat. The classic tabby pattern has distinctive "butterfly" markings on the shoulders and "oysters" on the flanks. In all except the Black Silver Tabbies, the eye colour is copper, orange or deep gold.
The Spotted cat has the same head pattern as the Classic and Mackerel Tabbies. The pattern on the body and legs should consist of numerous, well defined, oval, round or rosette-shaped spots which follow the tabby pattern in distribution. The tail should have numerous narrow rings or spots, the tip of the tail being the same colour as the markings.
