There are many different types of cats, and this is abundant in Warrior Cats. There is a large variety of breeds and styles of cat throughout the Clans and beyond.

Below is a list of terms commonly used in the books to describe a cat's appearance.

Coat colourings and patterns

These are different types of coat patterns commonly seen on cats, which are referred to in the Warrior Cats series.

These are not breeds, in fact these patterns are commonly seen in many different breeds of cat.

Term Description
Tabby A Tabby is a cat with a distinctive coat pattern with stripes, dots, lines or swirl patterns.
Tabby cats can come in several colours, but most commonly shades of grey, black and brown.

There are four main types of Tabby cat.

Mackerel Tabby: A coat with thin vertical stripes down the sides of its coat, more commonly referred to as 'tiger stripes'.

Chat Rules
There are no strict rules for the chats, simply put all I ask is for no spam or drama.

This includes flooding the chat with text, inappropriate subjects (keep the chat PG) or constantly interrupting RP.

If people are roleplaying please take any unrelated conversation or discussions to the general chat rather than the roleplay.

If a member constantly spams, interrupts or offends other users on a regular basis, an admin may ban them if at least 2 staff members agree.

You can contact WhiteTiger on the Contact page if you have any issues.
