Types of colors
Scottish cats have a huge variety of color variations, one of the most popular of which is tabby, and it is these cats that are often depicted in the photo in advertising. With this color on the cat’s forehead, the letter “M” is visible, on the tail and paws are narrow strips that go over to the neck and sides in spots or a marble pattern. On the eyes and lobe of the nose – edging. Tabby can have quite a few variations.
• tiger tabby. Clear narrow lines along the cat’s entire body, a striped tail, a necklace around the neck, and a saddle-like pattern on the back.
• spotted tabby. Distinct patches all over the hull of various shapes and sizes. Along the ridge stains are formed in one lane, which goes from the neck to the tail. There are stripes on the paws and tail, small spots on the belly.
