Anyone know what a 'reverse coat' on a cat is?

funyellowDecember 10, 2010

The shelter where we adopted our cats said that one of them has a "reverse coat" but I don't know what that means. In the frenzy of adopting them it wasn't the first thing on my mind to ask. But now I'm curious. Does anyone know?

if you need a pic, I can find one to post.

wonder if it's the same thing as "smoke", where the fur is white or very light at the base & darkens as it grows out.

Years ago, I had a beautiful black smoke cat;
if you stroked him from tail-end toward front-end, you could see the white;
otherwise, he looked like a black cat.
