There are also many different kinds of patterns in cats. In addition to pure yellow, pure black, and pure white fur, there are also cats with different patterns, which is similar to our modern understanding of cat fur. Cats with unadulterated fur and bright eyes are mostly good cats of excellent quality.
The pure fur should belong to the long-haired cats, and it is written in the "Xiang Mao Jing" that "all pure colors, regardless of yellow, white and black, are called Si Shi Hao." The left cat in Jin Qing's "Two Cats" of the Song Dynasty is one of the "Si Shi Hao (四时好)".
