We Tabby Cats are super special and come in different varieties, The classic tabby pattern (also known as marbled or blotched) consists of thick stripes or spots that swirl into a bullseye on either side of the cat’s body. Classic tabbies also have a faint “butterfly” pattern on their shoulders with 3 thin stripes running down the spine.
The mackerel tabby pattern (also known as fishbone) is common, and presents as slender vertical stripes, gently curving on the sides of the body. The stripes may be continuous or broken into shorter segments as they reach the flanks and stomach.
Spotted tabbies are thought to result from a gene that breaks up either the mackerel or classic patterns, turning stripes into spots. The Mau, Maine Coon, Bengal, Savannah and Ocicat breeds are among the tabbies bearing this pattern.
Ticked tabbies have few to zero stripes or bands, but their distinctive pattern is the result of agouti hairs that break up the tabby pattern into a salt-and-pepper or sand-like look. Agouti is when individual hairs have distinct bands of color.
A patched tabby pattern is two-toned, often mixed with tortoiseshell.
We also have the very special "M" marking. Regardless of the type of tabby pattern, one thing all tabbies can have in common are 3 or 5 vertical lines that appear in an ‘M’ shape on the forehead, as well as dark lines coming from the corners of their eyes and that may cross the cheeks.
Regardless of where the ‘M’ came from, most tabbies also appear to have dark eyeliner surrounding their eyes, splotched pigmentation on the lips and paws, and an outlined pink nose.
We're proudly showing our Tabby markings today!! We hope lots of other Tabby Cat Club members show theirs today too

It's Pet Parents Day!
Those of us who are pet parents are proud to be responsible for the well being and life our pets experience. It's a "job" we do with great joy in our hearts. I remember when I was very young I wanted almost more than ANYTHING to have a pet of my very own. Through the years I've had many pets - and loved taking care of each and every one - they gave me all their love and I gave it back.
I am a proud Pet Parent - Teddy makes me happy and I hope I make HIM happy too.
Happy Pet Parent Day to all of the other pet parents out there!
Hugs, Pam (and Teddy)

Today's event is to show how you are spoiled by your parents. Mom has a lot of photos like this and always says "why the bed isn't made" since she won't move me. Yep...I'm spoiled and I love it!
