Is it possible for cats to be unable to see their own fur color?

For example, I've heard that cats have trouble seeing the color orange. Many cats have an orange fur color. I have a hard time imagining that cats just see that part of their fur as white, so does that mean that they only have trouble seeing certain shades of orange?

Research shows that cats are not completely colorblind. They are capable of distinguishing some colors, but orange is not one of them. They may see orange and some other colors as gray shades.
