When we adopted Bubbles we thought he was a black cat, but when we brought him home to our surprise in bright lighting he has stripes.

Bubbles is a black tabby, the 1st time I ever seen a black tabby. I love his stripes.

We adopted Bubbles and he's the best little furbaby ever.

Beautiful Bubbles
by: Ami and Diesel

I too have a gorgeous black beauty with stripes just like this!!! I always wondered about them! I think they are so cool! My cat is now 9 years old and i named him Diesel because my hubby found him in the middle of the interstate here in Texas. He was a tiny kitten and really hairless and i decided to keep him cause i knew he would be prob euthanized if we gave him to a pound. To my surprise he had these stripes when his hair grew in and he was very handsome...just like Bubbles! Having Diesel has made me aware of the plight of black cats and the discrimination against them. They arent adopted as much because of the bad luck stigma and because they dont have cute markings! So i am glad that u are a proud black (and striped) cat owner. My Diesel was a Godsend to me and i hope he is with me for another 9 glorious years...dont know what i will do without him :(

Nice cat I Don't see the stripes
by: Anonymous

I can't see no stripes in your cat not from the pictures anyway. But that don't matter black cats are good anyway, the best is what I think. Thats because I have one and she has the same kind of eyes as your cat has. I call them her ray gun eyes because she stares so hard at me like she is going to shoot rays out from her eyes and turn me to dust. Mostly she just lays on my bed all day but she will come and swipe at me untill I pick her up and hold her. She tears up the walls t and I get yell at for it!!

stripes in my cat.
by: Dan Bedford

Nice cat. We have one and you can see the stripes quite clearly even when it there is not all that much sun. As he got older the stripes became clearer. He is a good old boy. Look after your cat, they are good to have around.

Wonderful photos.
by: Larry (editor)


Hi Tammy,

Thank you very much for telling us about Bubbles and sharing those wonderful photos, he is a gorgeous black cat.

Yes, with some black cats you can see tabby stripes showing through in strong sunlight. This is because the tabby gene is there in all cats.

Also, with some older black cats out in the sun you can see a tinge of deep red. They almost look as if they are going rusty.

I do especially love your photo of bubbles looking up, a most unusual pose.

Thank you for sharing once again Tammy.

Black tabby
by: Lesley

I love tabby cats, they're gorgeous. We used to have one in our close (Ziggy) who was very handsome.

I've never seen a black tabby before though. Most unusual.

Thanks for sharing.

Lesley
