Kittens that are black actually are one of the two primary colors that cats come in - which are black and red.
And if your kitty is pretty much black all over, it is called a "solid." So a "solid black" is just that: black all over. It may be coal black, grayish black, or brownish black.
If however your cat is pretty much solid black, but the roots of the hairs are distinctly white, then it is called a "smoke."
While it's normal for the roots on a solid cat to be grayish; true smokes, on the other hand, have definite white roots. So what kind of black coat does your furry feline have? Take some time, look closely and see.
