Hello everyone, I am from Southeast texas. I befriended a stray tabby tomcat last year or he adopted me guess you can say. I saw him passing through the yard and saw how skinny he was, so I put out some food for him and he wouldn't let me pet him at first he started coming around more, started trusting me. Now he loves for his tummy to be petted, when he is on his back, he will wiggle his way closer to me, sometimes he gets on my feet and turns over for a belly rub.. he likes to come in the house, so sometimes I will let him in to eat, normally I feed him outside. Now this makes me think he was a pet at one time or who knows maybe he is still someone's pet. He roams the neighborhood he maybe gone for a few days he always comes back, he eats with his paw most the time. his tail has a thickeness to it blunt end.. This is how I met Lieutenant and I am attached to him. he is cautious of people.. I would like your thoughts on what type of tabby he is.

what tabby is he? I forgot to mention before I ever met him, he must have gotten hit by a car, or something happened to him.. You could tell by his botton jaw and when I took him to the vet the vet confirmed it and he also looked at his teeth and could also tell by the teeth. He was already healed up at the time, and he is 2 yrs or going on 2 yrs.

very cute. I'd say he's either a mackerel tabby or a spotted tabby. Wikipedia has a picture for each type of tabby on their page for tabby cats.

sounds very cute. Lieutenant is calm, people are afraid of him not sure why he is loveable in his own way.

Lieutenant seems to be a very smart and lucky tabby. Smart to have found his way into your heart, and lucky because your heart was ready to let him in.

sorry for the late reply. I love animals, I will say I am more of a dog person. I think i'm lucky to have him in my life. For a young tom cat his soul is that old an old soul he is like an old man, very calm. I have notice he don't like guys to much if one tries to pet him he will move away from them.. I did the unthinkable few days ago I decided to give him a bath problaly his first bath ever, so I got prepared as you know most cats don't like baths, to my surprise he did better than I thought he would, he meowed about 2 times and he did put up a little fight nothing crazy, I he liked it when I was rubbing the shampoo in his fur, he was dirty, alot of flees. I didn't realize how big he was until I gave him a bath..I know he feels better after the bath and his fur is soo shiney almost like it glitters! he has been coming in the house alot lately he lays around and he eats.
My aunt came over one day and she saw him and couldn't believe how big his jawls are and how big he is and how his tail looks different. Sorry for the long post!.
