My Stray Looks Exotic

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
First off, I'm new here, so hi to everyone.

Second, I just wanted to see what you guys thought about the newest addition to our family. Georgia came to us a few months ago and we've always thought she was pretty, but we started to notice how exotic she looked. I realize she could just be a tabby, and either way I'll still adore her. But I figured it'd be fun to know if she's got something cool in her blood.

Here's a few pics of her.


This is her spotted belly. And how she often sleeps...


Her face coloring.


This cat is always chasing something. She rarely touches the ground.


Just a fun pic of her. Her "pet fly" got loose, so she was trying to catch him.


Thanks everyone.

Her color and markings are scarily similar to my girl Autumn's. Her head and ears are gorgeous! You are right she does look exotic .

Thanks, I got extremely lucky! She was coming at me and I just clicked. Lucky it's an auto-focus.

From someone who takes a HUGE amount of pictures of our cats........that fly picture is amazing!!
For you to capture that, with that amount of clarity is just awesome. You really should submit that to some of the photo contests that are on the net.

Oh....and btw...welcome to the forum! Your cat is a beauty and very talented to have captured the fly in the first place.

Very exotic looking. I LOVE the color in your kitty - not the typical brown tabby for sure

BTW in case anyone wants to know the difference between a torbie and a patched tabby.

Her kitty IS a brown patched tabby - its basically a brown tabby with red mixed in. A torbie would be a tortoiseshell cat with some striping. Can some of you now tell the difference?

Really? I was told at a CFA show by a judge that torbie was a TICA term and patched tabby was the CFA term... Huh.

Well ACFA classifys them as two different colors - just to add to the confusion

IMO you can have a difference. Patched tabby would have the basic brown or blue tabby and then throw in red color (without striping).

Torbies would have the tortoiseshell colors (black/red or blue/cream) and then have striping in the red/cream colors.

Maybe that's clearer?

Thanks! This is what I was looking for by posting. I appreciate the clarification.

Here's a colored corrected version of that photo. It's so good I just had to see if I could pull some more detail out of it. May make it easier for those of us with laptops to see as well.

What a pretty kitty!
