Looks like brown with white and the coat pattern is classic tabby.

Ooh what a cutie! I've seen many tabby-and-white kitties (I don't know if there's a name for them) with a mackerel tabby pattern, but not too many with the classic tabby like Lucky. He looks like he's wondering why you've interrupted his nap.

Thanks everyone, he's an ex street cat, and several of his kin still roam the towns streets. His cute little butt is ginger. And he loves his naps.

We would call him a grey marble tabby with white. A handsome fellow. I really can't tell by the pic if he is grey or brown but looks grey to me. The "marble" denotes the swirls in his tabby coat.

Cat owners' prayer: "Lord help me be the person my cat thinks I am"

Aww, I can't see the second picture.

I tend to agree with doodlebug from the first picture. Lucky looks like my cat G's coloring, and that's how I describe him to others. The coloring on Lucky's face looks tannish (brown), similar to the coloring on the shoulders, flank, back and tail.

I've got two types of tabbies, both with a brown coat. Maya has mackerel (striped like the fish or tigers) and G has classic tabby markings, though his bullesye markings are less pronounced as yours. Classic markings are not as common due to a recessive gene.
