The Personality of a Tabby Cat is Quite Unique in All Respects

Tabby Cat Personality
Cute, cuddly, and intelligent are the three words which are often used to describe tabby cats. These cats are found in a variety of sizes and colors. The eye color also varies with the breed. However, they do have one thing in common - a distinct M-shaped mark on their forehead. It is this distinguishing feature that gives them a unique look.
Recognizing and Understanding Tabbies
There are 4 main patterns observed in tabbies:
~ Classic
~ Mackerel
~ Spotted
~ Ticked

The various patterns and varieties in tabby cats are very interesting to see and study. These patterns are caused by specific genes. Brown tabbies with green eyes are very commonly found. Tabby cats have coats which have distinct markings in the form of whirls, stripes, or spots. The variety in the color of the coats such as gray, orange, brown, etc., is another characteristic feature. The stripes on the body of these cats can be easily and rightly compared to those which are present on the body of tigers. These cats are considered beautiful and graceful by many people.

The one important thing about tabby cats is that, they're not an independent or specific breed, as is perceived by many people. Cats who have a particular and distinct pattern on their coat are referred to as tabby cats. The tabby pattern can be found in almost all breeds. Since they are not a different breed, tabbies do not have a distinct personality, or any 'tabby' specific traits. They borrow the traits of the breed to which they belong.
That said, it should still be kept in mind that each cat will have a unique and distinct personality, so it is better to enjoy their uniqueness, rather than try to fit them into a certain stereotype.

Although tabbies are not a distinctive breed, a majority of tabby owners have reported that these cats do have certain qualities that are slightly out of character compared to other cats. The behavioral traits among different breeds are as different and varied, like those seen in human beings at different locations.

Tabbies are extremely playful and friendly by nature, which is quite contrary to the 'aloof demeanor' that most domestic felines are stereotyped with. They love to hang around their family, and are usually more attached to a particular person in the house who does all the tasks related to their day-to-day routines.

They are very gentle by nature, and love being the center of attention. They also love sharing the bed with their owners. Most owners say that tabbies are very laid back, and love to spend most of their time having fun. Also, they seem to be sharper and more intelligent than other felines.

Behavioral observers say that they are quite affectionate and cheerful, and ever ready to play, unlike the typical 'lazy' behavior associated with cats in general. Tabbies love being cuddled, sitting on their owner's laps, rubbing against people's legs, etc. They are therefore often referred to as 'the dogs among cats'!
They do show the occasional willful and stubborn behavior, and are not angels all the time. Also, they love to come and go as and when they please, but this is the behavior that is seen in almost all cats, so is not very exclusive to tabbies.

Most tabby cats are known to be happy-go-lucky by nature, but are bound to get fussy if their wishes are not fulfilled. The personality of a tabby does not depend on the color of its coat.

As is the law of nature, there are exceptions in every case. So you will find some tabbies who are shy and love to spend hours in a peaceful and quiet place. They enjoy being treated with oodles of love and care, and handled gently while being lifted or played with.

Sometimes, tabbies tend to overreact to small things, while at other times, they simply won't show any emotions. Yes, there definitely are many moody tabby cats in this world! Generally, their behavior is problematic initially, when some other pet is brought into the home, but they eventually adjust well, given time.
