moonwise: (life with biscuit)
[personal profile] moonwise
Biscuit had to go to the vet yesterday for an annual checkup and a distemper booster shot. While we were there, the vet admired her stripes (which he probably does for every cat). We've always said that she is a brown/black tabby with bleach spots, because she has slightly lighter tabby patches throughout her coat - as if someone had spattered her with a weak solution of bleach. The vet said that the lighter patches mean that she is actually a calico.

You learn something new every day!

And, because Biscuit is way more popular than I am, here is a picture of her in her Trucker Pose.

You should send this photo to I Can Haz Cheeseburger for captioning! :D

She does have particularly vivid stripes with very well defined edges. And yes, she's what we Brits would call a 'tortie tabby'.

As I understand cat patterns, she'd need white to be a calico; as she's lacking it, she's a tortoiseshell-tabby or "torbie" like Q*Bert.

I love animals in the trucker pose.

This picture really needs a trucker hat 'shopped in and made into an icon.
