Why do cats—and so many other animals—look like they’re wearing socks?

Why do cats—and so many other animals—look like they’re wearing socks? Grumpy Cat. Lil Bub. Maru. What do all of these internet-famous cats have in common? From ankle down, their paws are as white as the trendy marble countertops vying for attention in the very same Instagram feed. Pet lovers refer to this particular color pattern as an animal’s “socks," “booties,” "mittens," or "tuxedo" for obvious reasons. The phenomenon of pigment mixed with white splotches can occur in pigs, deer, horses, dogs, guinea pigs, birds, and, in rare cases, humans. But it’s particularly prominent in cats, as evidenced by the fact that Socks consistently ranks in the top names for felines.

And they've been given appropriate construction names: Crowbar, Rebar, Chisel, Jackhammer and Piper.
