Fun Facts: The Tabby Cat.

Did you know that the Tabby cat is NOT a specific breed?

It is the coat pattern that is referred to as Tabby. Patterns include distinctive stripes (Mackerel), spots, ticked or swirls (classic). All patterns are effective forms of camouflage.

The Tabby cat comes in various colors and the gene for the tabby pattern can be found in all domestic cats.

A close look at a Tabby’s forehead includes a design that resembles an ‘M’.

Visit our web site cat gallery and see if you can identify the various Tabby patterns on our cat boarding ‘guests’.

We enjoy seeing so many different cat breeds and coat patterns while providing cat care at the Hotel 4 Cats. One of our extra special cat boarding services includes giving personalized attention to how your cat’s coat looks and feels during his/her stay with us. We will comb your cat to ensure that it remains tangle-free and your cat feels loved. We encourage you to bring favorite toys, bedding, brush/comb or something from home to make them feel “at home” while they are away from you.

We have a feline behavior specialist available to help create a
customized improvement plan for you and your cat.
