March is one of my favorite months because we feature the remarkable tabby cats then.
Look at cat photo collections almost anywhere, and I'd be willing to bet that the majority of the pictures will be of tabby cats. They've been around throughout history, and can be found in many of the most popular cat breeds, including the glorious Maine Coon. Almost all tabby cats' foreheads are marked with that mysterious "M," and there are legends and stories about how that M appeared. Although tabbies are the most commonly found color pattern, in my book, there is absolutely nothing "common" about the tabby cat.
