Sometimes, a cat's breed is used to determine its personality by making it a kind of voiced ethnic or nationality stereotype, especially if the name of the breed has a country in it. This has little to do with how the breed really acts, as anyone who has cats will attest. Breed stereotypes are rarely done with cats since breed variations aren't always as striking and well known compared to [[DogStereotype dogs]].

** '''White:''' Most white cats tend to be good, with the exception of Snowtuft, a Dark Forest cat, in the fourth series. Whitewing in particular tends to be gentle and kind. Whitestorm is one of the earliest stereotypical TheMentor characters. The ''Warriors'' series does make note of the fact that white cats with blue eyes often tend to be deaf; one character comments that one of her first litter was, and Fireheart is thankful that his nephew is not.
