What cat breed is Felix?

I’ll presume that the question refers to a famous cartoon cat, Felix the Cat, who is almost certainly not a member of a cat breed. Felix dates from the 1920s. The cat fancy had not been in existence for that long at the time and there is no indication that the creator, Pat Sullivan, modelled Felix on a cat breed.

Rather Felix is a random bred, black-and-white cat; mainly black with white on his face which makes him a tuxedo cat in modern cat language.

I have a very full page on Felix so I won’t go over his life here. Please read the page by clicking on this link. Thanks.
