TABBY CATS ARE VERSATILE
Tabby cats are perhaps the most common type of cat in America today. Tabby cats can be grouped into two different types: the domestic short-hair and the domestic long-hair cat. The only difference is that one cat has a short hair-coat and the other has a long hair-coat! It is just fancy terminology for cats that have bred together without any “human” maintenance of the gene pool. Because of this variation, you can get all sorts of different colors and shades. Tabby cats such as the calico, tortoise shell, orange and grey striped cat, black, white cats etc….fit into this category. The genes get mixed up a lot with natural breeding so when two cats breed you never are going to know what the makeup of the tabby cat kittens are going to be!
