bi-color cat question

Tommy is a gray & white bi-color, but he has just a hint of the typical tabby rings on his tail. I was just wondering if this is typical of a bi-color cat, or if he probably has a tabby in his family tree?

Thanks....

Yeah, lots of cats have what we call "ghost tabby" traces - my male is solid grey, and still has faint tabby markings, my female is also grey and white, and has that same striped tail - I call it her racoon tail, kinda cute! Probably means there are tabby genes in there somewhere.
