Holy Mackerel!

The other day, our friend Daisy asked if Daphne was a "mackerel" tabby.
We'd never heard of that term, so we Googled it - indeed, Daphne IS a mackerel tabby!
A mackerel tabby is a striped tabby whose stripes are vertical parallel bars across their body when standing.
Holy Mackerel! We love learning stuff!
Thanks, Daisy!
luv,
