A brown baby cat is conquering the hearts of the TikTok community right now. The chocolate tigers are not only considered beautiful, but are also relatively rare.
Have you ever seen a plain brown cat? If not, you're in good company. A large number of users reacted stunned to the TikTok video of Lord Biscoff – a Chocolate British Shorthair and commented: "There are brown cats?", or "I've never seen them before". In fact, house cats in brown are relatively rare.
Coat color in cats is a science in itself
As a rule, there are three basic colors in cats: black, red, and white. This is due to the dyes eumelanin in black and pheomelanin in red. White is produced when there are no paint particles. If the pigments are diluted or weakened by the dilute gene, unusual coat colors sometimes develop.

One of the most well-known breeds for chocolate-colored house cats is the British Shorthair. It is characterized by a large, round head and large eyes. In addition, it has a robust and stable body shape and relatively short but plush fur. She is considered calm and balanced and is an extremely uncomplicated and pleasant roommate. You can find out here whether coat colour and character are related.
