Here is the Legend of the tabby "M" on the forhead... All of us, at one time or another, have listened to the "old folks" tell us amazing tales. Folk lore and legends abound in all cultures. Passed by word of mouth from one generation to the next, these legends grow and change. A veterinarian shared this story with me. I share it with you, in the tradition of story-telling, in my own words and with my own embellishments. This is the legend of the Tabby "M". All of us have heard that first Christmas described as a silent night. However, one of God's creatures knew otherwise.
The cat hunted in the cold, starry night. He didn't look much different from the other cats; he was gray in color with stripes the color of charcoal. As he walked down the dark alleyway, he heard crying coming from a stable. He entered the door and saw a mother trying to comfort her newborn son.
She spoke softly. "I don't know what to do. I thought you were hungry, so I fed you. I thought you were wet, so I changed your diaper. I thought you were cold, so I wrapped another blanket around you."
She rocked the infant a few minutes longer and then laid him back in a manger filled with hay. The baby continued to cry.
The cat knew what needed to be done. He leapt into the manger and curled up next to the child. In comforting tones, he began to purr. It was the sweetest lull-a-bye ever heard. The baby quieted and drifted off to sleep.
The woman gently stroked his fur. "Thank you. I don't know where you came from, but thank you."
God was looking down and witnessing the blessed events of His son's birthday. Heard only by the cat, God spoke.
"You have done a wonderful deed this night. Because you cared enough to help this woman, I will mark you and your offspring forever so that people will know what you have done. Her name is Mary and from this day forward you will have the letter "M" on your forehead." So when you see a cat with the tabby pattern (no matter if it's gray, brown, or some other color) look closely at its forehead and you will see the letter "M". By this you will know that it is a descendant of the cat that comforted the newborn Christ on that first Christmas night.
Why do some human's have blue eyes? It is because it is the arrangement of their genetic make up that replicates the genes of their ancestors. The same reason that cheeta's have spot's or tigers have stripes or even lion's having a mane.
the M on the forehead suggests that it is a Maine Coon --- The 'M' simply means it is a tabby, the natural coat pattern occurring on several breeds and mixed-breed cats. The colour of the cat does not suggest the breed, as many breeds can be orange and white and any mixed breed can be orange and white.
The tabby pattern is a naturally occurring feature that may be the original colouration of the domestic cat's distant ancestors, the African wild cat. The word, adapted from the name of a kind of textile, comes from French tabis, which was earlier atabis, and in medieval Latin attabi. The distant origin of the word seems to be from the Attabiyah section of Baghdad where a type of striped silk was made that was later used to describe cats.Since the tabby pattern is a common wild type, it would be assumed that medieval cats were of tabby type. This was not the case in England at least. Some time after the mid-17th century, the curious antiquary John Aubrey noted in his disorganised memoranda, "W. Laud, A.B. Cant. was a great lover of Catts. He was presented with some Cyprus-catts, i.e. our Tabby-catts, which were sold, at first for 5 pounds a piece: this was about 1637 or 1638. I doe well remember that the common English Catt, was white with some blewish piednesse : sc, a gallipot blew. The race or breed of them are now almost lost."  William Salmon, in The Compleat English Physician, (London, 1693:326) notes of the domestic cat, "It is a neat and cleanly creature, often licking itself to keep it fair and clean, and washing its face with its fore feet; the best are such as of a fair and large kind and of an exquisite tabby color called Cyprus cats". A study by the National Cancer Institute suggests that all current house cats (Felis catus) in the world are descendants from a group of self-domesticating wild cats 10,000 years ago, somewhere in the Near East. The closest relative of the Wild cat is the Sand Cat (Felis margarita). For the PCH Quiz: answer is: An M On Their Forehead
You can draw a cat with an m, o,and a g
Size relative to a 6-ft (2-m) man.
I,m no to sure but my mum says no but i think yes because my dad says they can but im not sure though
all tabby cat has an ''m'' on their four heads.
Not particularly. Many tabby cats naturally have an M shape in the stripes on their head. Some tortoise shell cats also have M-shaped patches of color on their heads.
A tabby cat usually refers to a cat of any colour with stripes on its coat as opposed to flat colour. They are noted for the 'M' marking on their forehead. You can tell which are tabbies by looking at one of their outer hairs; if it has bands of two or more colours on a single hair then it is a tabby. The ticked tabby has no stripes on its body, but it has the 'M' on its forehead and bands on its hairs.
The "M" marking on the forehead signifies that the cat carries a common trait of the Maine Coon Tabby Cat, one of the oldest recognized breeds of domestic cats. Chances are the cat is Maine Coon tabby, or at least part.
A male cat is usually referred to as a tom. A tabby cat however, is a type of domestic house cat with stripes, dots or a swirling pattern to their fur with a distinctive M mark on their forehead.
The letter "M" that is on the foreheads of many striped cats is just a coincidence based upon the way the stripes grow in on the skin. There is no special meaning to this.
The appearance of the letter "M" on a cat's forehead has to do with the overall pattern of their fur. Specifically, this is a characteristic of tabby patterns, or cats with a mixed pattern that has tabby genetics, such as a lynx point Siamese cat. So, if a cat does not have those genes, or that pattern, it won't have the "M" on its forehead.
It's just the way he\she is born. Some are born with an M and some are born with a different letter, such as O. I used to have an orange tabby as well.
i have one, grey tabby cats, well all tabby cats have a 'm' shape on their fore head
A tabby has stripes on its forehead usually that look sort of like an M. Look at pics closely and you can see it!! :) That's my own way of telling its either all tabby or part tabby. A tortishell cat has not patches but brindled brown and black fur. A Calico which people confuse for Tortishells has Brown , Black and white fur that's patched. :) --- A normal tabby cat has no ginger in its fur, which is the definition of a tortoiseshell. Cats can also be torbies, which is a tortoiseshell-tabby. In this pattern, the cat has ginger patches, and you will see tabby markings on the face and body where there is no ginger. In a tortoiseshell, the ginger patches always have tabby markings whether the cat is a tabby or not.
Sounds like you have a domestic red tabby and depending on hair length "red tabby DSH, DLH or DMH", where S, L or M is for Short,Long or Medium Lenth Hair.
A cat with an "M" pattern on its forehead is a tabby (this is not a breed, it's just a coat pattern which occurs in several different cat breeds and is probably related to the pattern of the wild ancestors of domestic cats). If you want the name of a specific kitten, we can't help you.
