Jack does not have the markings of a typical tabby cat. I finally got a picture that kind of shows his back and markings. What is this coloring or pattern called?

Brown classic tabby and white - confirmed!
Considering that American Shorthairs originally came from the basic domestic population, it would not be uncommon to find some cats with classic markings!
As for the "fuzzy" coat, he appears to be in the "fugly" (fuzzy ugly) stage of kitten hood, I wouldn't worry about getting a smoother coat later on
He looks like a handful!
Here's a pic of one of my visitors currently residing in my home for the next week....
She's a nearly 5 month old silver tabby ( you don't need to mention Classic markings when registering a cat with CFA, it's understood! ) American Shorthair, currently undergoing quarantine in my home before she's sent back to Hong Kong...
OK, now I'm confused. I had been told that the swirlying markings wer the makrel tabby & then stripes were the classic tabby? Is that backwards?
