Grey tabby cats, also known as tabbies or tabby cats, are a popular breed of domestic cat characterized by their grey fur and distinctive striped markings. These cats are known for their playful and affectionate personalities, making them a popular choice for pet owners.
The grey tabby coat is caused by the presence of the agouti gene, which determines the color and pattern of a cat’s fur. The agouti gene produces bands of color on the individual hairs, resulting in the striped markings that are characteristic of tabby cats. Grey tabby cats can have either a mackerel, classic, ticked, or spotted tabby pattern, with each pattern distinguished by the width and placement of the stripes.
