Tabby Tuesday


You might be thinking, Now wait just a minute. You're calling this post Tabby Tuesday, and then show us a calico? Well, this little calico has herself some tabby stripes, and she's proud of them.


Can you see those stripes on her caramel shoulder? This here human failed to help Tonks get a good, evidential shot, but this calico girl's caramel patches are pretty heavily adorned with tabby markings.


And do you see those toesies there? They're an added bonus. We hope you enjoy!

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Our Tip of the Day:

Yesterday we discussed whether it was safe to feed your furbaby a taste of that Thanksgiving turkey. Another food you might find on the Thanksgiving table is ham. Is this safe to feed your furbaby, though? Ham, like turkey potentially can be, is often high in fat. Ham is also often processed or treated, and can possibly contain high amounts of salt. These factors can lead to any number of issues, such as gastrointestinal distress or pancreatitis, if consumed in excess by your kitty or pup. And, just as we've said of other Thanksgiving foods, also be aware of other potentially concerning ingredients added to ham, such as onion and garlic. While very small amounts might not have an effect for some furbabies, do be aware of the potential side effects that fatty, processed, treated, or seasoned ham can cause.

It's also worth noting to be aware of the contents and preparation of chicken, beef, and all meats served at your Thanksgiving dinner. These can all potentially contain problematic fat, or additives such as onion, garlic, salt, and so forth. To prevent pancreatitis, gastrointestinal distress, or other issues, either refrain from giving your furbaby a taste at all, or give treats only in moderation and only when you are certain that the food contains no potentially dangerous components.

Beautiful mix. One of the kittens at the cat cafe is a mix of Tortie and Tabby, and she's beautiful.

Tonks is a beautiful girl. She can get into the Tabby Cat Club, Joanie got in with the little stripes on her paw :) And a sticker of a M on her head :) Cute drawing and excellent tips.

You are so pretty Tonks! Definitely welcome on this Tabby Tuesday! Your tips are very good too. We always give our kitties just a tiny taste of turkey but nothing big just a little bitty treat.

Tonks, you are adorable. As a Tabby, I'll make you an honorary tabby with those pretty stripes.

Tonks, we are just loving all of your caramel markings. That face of yours is just too adorable. Plus the added bonus of caramel on your paw too. Thanks for sharing these great photos. Have a great and happy Tuesday.

Yes, a calico can have tabby stripes in those colors. It just makes them prettier.

Your cat in the doodle has quite the balancing act going on.

She is so ridiculously adorable!

Hi, Tonks! All the best cats are some cross between a tortie and a tabby. My Kitty was mostly a tabby with a blotch or two of tortieness. I miss her so much. And she had those bi-color paw pads just like you, Tonk!

You are all gorgeous kitties in any furs.
