Tabby Cat!

Tabby cats are often believed to be one breed of cat, but actually they come from a variety of different breeds!

That means that the only feature needed to be a tabby cat is for the cat to have distinctive dots, stripes, lines and swirling patterns, and often a mark that looks like an "M" on its forehead!

Did you know that these stripes are most likely because of the cat's direct ancestor, the African Wild Cat!
