Tabby Cats are a mix between purebred and mixed-breed cats. Tabby cats are not a breed but instead a coat pattern. Their disposition is very sweet. Patterns are: Classic, Mackerel, Spotted, Patched, and Ticked. They all have the signature “M” on their foreheads.
In America and other Christian countries, Tabby Cats has a legend of its own. As the Christ child lay in the manger, no animal – not even the gentle donkey or the faithful shepherd dog – could soothe Him to sleep. But when a little tabby cat jumped lightly into the manger and began to purr a lullaby, the Babe fell asleep at last. Ever since, all Tabby Cat foreheads have borne an M in token for the Madonna’s gratitude.
