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.
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.
