When Iris was born several people on this forum told me that she is a brown patched tabby, which is what I've been calling her all her life, and that's what I put on the entry form for the show this past weekend. There were six rings each day for a total of twelve. She went through the first ten rings as a brown patched tabby with the judges remarking on her beautiful coloring. The 11th judge informed me in no uncertain terms that the description is not accurate. Iris is a "brown patched mackerel ticked tabby". So now I know. Well, actually I already knew she was all those things, it just never occurred to me to put everything on the entry form. My question now is, should I put the entire description down for her next show or just stick with the "brown patched tabby"?
