Why are orange tabby cats so loving
When hunting for orange tabby cat facts, you need to focus on their looks, not their personality. Personality varies from cat to cat and has little to do with coat pattern or color. An interesting orange tabby cat fact is that most of these guys are boys - about 80 percent of orange tabby cats are male.Chances are, if it's the color orange, it's a boy.

Ginger, jam, jam - all are descriptions for one of the classic tabby cat colors, the orange tabby. This popular cat has a reputation for being an affectionate, engaging cat, perhaps because it's so well represented in pop culture. Perhaps the most famous orange tabby cat was "Morris," the cat food mascot, although "Garfield," the cartoon orange tabby, could give Morris some serious competition. Other famous orange tabby cats include "Orangey" from the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's", and "Orion," the galaxy-bearing cat from "Men in Black".
The color orange - or red
The Cat Fanciers' Association does not mention the color "orange" in its breed standards. For example, an American shorthair cat may look orange, but the cat breeder standard norm is that it should have markings that are a "deep, rich red". The cat is not red like a stop sign or a cherry, but it is red by the standards of the association, even if its color looks more like a dark, bright orange or a light orange sorbet.
Mackerel and classic tabby cats
There are four basic tabby patterns: Ticked, mackerel, classic and discovered each with breed-specific variations. The classic and mackerel tabby are the most common types. The mackerel tabby bears thin vertical stripes similar to fishbones that can break in spots or bars. The classic pattern shows wide ribbons, spirals and spirals of dark color on a light background. In the case of an orange tabby, this will be a darker orange on a light background, such as a cream or pale orange. There are more mackerel-patterned tabbies than classic patterns, but the classic pattern is popular because of its striking swirls and whorls. Both patterns mark their cats with the "M" on their foreheads.
The mackerel and classic tabby patterns are common to a wide variety of breeds. American Shorthair, American Wirehair, Cornish Rex, LaPerm, Japanese Bobtail, American Bobtail, and Maine Coon are a selection of the orange tabby cats available, although their breed standards refer to them as red tabby cats.
Ticked and spotted tabby cats
The tabby pattern isn't necessarily just stripes and swirls. Ticked cats are tabby, although you may not notice a tabby pattern in these cats. Abyssinian, Somali and Singapura as well as crossbreed cats have this gene which masks the other tabby patterns. Any banding is limited to the legs, face and tail - if it shows at all. These cats display an agouti pattern for a ticked effect. The Abyssinians and Somalis may come in red, according to the breed standards of the Cat Breeders Association, although they wear a vibrant copper-colored coat that bears little resemblance to a classic standard tabby.
Spotted tabbies have another modification gene that turns stripes into spots. The British Shorthair and American Shorthair are two red or orange spotted tabby cats. The ocicat is another spotted tabby, but instead of finding the color red in its breed standard, it is listed as cinnamon.
