A very handsome Tabby Cat with heavenly blue eyes, that is our Mr. Elliott. He lives to lounge on your lap. My friend, Bonnie found him at the animal shelter and the minute she sat down,he crawled right up into her lap. A match made in Heaven.
What a handsome fellow he is and always so ready to pose for my camera. My friend found him at Bay Area animal rescue and the minute they saw one another, she knew they were going to be best friends for life.

The tabby cat has a distinctive coat that features stripes, dots, or swirling patterns. Tabbies are sometimes erroneously assumed to be a breed of cat. In fact, the tabby pattern is a naturally occurring feature that may be the original coloration of the domestic cat’s distant ancestors. Tabby color is found in many breeds of cat, as well as among the general ‘moggy’ (mixed-breed or mongrel) population. When cats are allowed to breed randomly, the coloration of the population tends toward brown mackerel tabbies with green eyes, leading geneticists to believe that this is the common wild phenotype of the domestic cat. The tabby usually has an “M” mark on its forehead.
