Black cats are one of the more common color coats. Black cats are not a particular breed; the solid black coat is a recessive gene that overrides the tabby pattern, which is why you don’t see any markings on a solid black cat.

The only cat breed that is known for his black fur is the Bombay cat breed. Although, there are other cat breeds that produce solid black cats, such as the American Shorthair, British Shorthair, Burmese, Maine Coon, Manx, Norwegian Forest, Persian, and Siberian cat breeds.
