Black Tabby?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My new little Squeak is a DSH black tabby. She looks pure black and shiny, but if you look really close you can see the familiar tabby markings on her coat. She is about 3 mo. old now. Will the tabby marks become more visible as she grows up? Will she change color? I don't believe I've ever seen a black tabby before. Is this an unusual combination?

There are pics of her in the Fur Pictures forum from a week or so ago. I can post more later, but I'm not at my computer now.

She may be a black cat with "ghost" tabby markings. They usually fade as the kitten grows, although I had one who kept her ghost markings for her entire 17 years of life. They never changed.

Many say all cats are genetically tabby, which gets masked by other colours.

It's not uncommon for 'solid' cats to have ghost tabby markings.

When the sun shines on Jupey you can see his tabby stripes, he can look very dark brown. He is a black cat though, with the odd white hair and a white tuft on his belly.
