Definition :


Tabby cats have a coat with striping, marbling, or dark spots on a light background, including:


• Blotched (or classic or marbled) tabby: wide, dark stripes curving over the flanks, butterfly


wings on the shoulders, three large stripes running


from the withers to the base of the tail.


•Mackerel (or tiger) tabby: thin, either continuous or broken stripes perpendicular to the spine.


• Spotted (or patched) tabby: round, even, distinct spots on a light background.


• Ticked tabby (Abyssinian coat): striping is almost absent and confined to the legs, necklace, or tail. Tabbies exist in all colors.
