Hi all,

I have a 4 month old tabby kitten called Ellie (tortie sister called Esme), and she's been very shy until yesterday when she wanted to play and purr and snuggle. First time for her, yet her sister is the opposite and won't leave me alone. I'm so happy she's finally mellowing, so thought I'd start a tabby appreciation thread smile

This is Ellie.

What a gorgeous girl!

My Mr Cooper is a Mackerel Tabby. He was feral, until I took him in 7 years ago

Here's my old lady. Stripey cats are fab.

Oh Lynne I love the tongue out photo - cats can look so adorably daft sometimes can't they?

Hmmingbird Tue 07-Aug-18 22:06:53

MrsBertBibby she's very regal. Definitely a duchess smile

iloveredwine Tue 07-Aug-18 22:12:03

he is amazing. always looks depressed or is it thoughtful?

Hmmingbird Tue 07-Aug-18 22:12:06

Wellmeet haha, so cute!

Iloveredwine - that is one big grumpy looking cat! Does he have some Maine coon in him? Bet he's a complete softie

I love these, thanks everyone. Feeling the tabby-love grin

I lost my tabby boy last year. Couldn’t face another tabby so have a tortie and a ginger now. Tabbies are fab

iloveredwine Tue 07-Aug-18 22:17:14

he is a total softie. loves being stroked and brushed! Not sure if any Maine Coon in him as he was a rescue but he is amazing with the kids.

Here’s mine
I’ve had him from 3-4 weeks old, when he was found as a stray, he’s now about 2, he’s very naughty!

iloveredwine Tue 07-Aug-18 22:19:15

feeling the heat!

We are currently in Cyprus on holiday and this little tabby lady (we've called her Tabitha) turned up at our villa on our first evening and hasn't left us since. I think she's been spayed as she has a nick out of her ear. She in pretty good shape but can be a little feisty and I've been swatted and hissed at a few times. She also inexplicably loves my DH's feet! Tonight she bravely crept onto my lap whilst I was lying on a sunbed reading. She was in total heaven and purring like a car engine as I gently stroked her. I'm already upset at the thought of having to leave her 😢

I love tabbies, but have only ever had one. This is because all my other cats have been 'acquired' rather than chosen. My present incumbent is a worried looking black and white female.

My tabby girl has just been spayed. She didn't like the buster collar and took it off very quickly so she's in a football sock! First time I've tried to post a pic so hoping it's worked.
