As is true with 99% of the cats at Tabby’s Place, our Rikki is a mixed breed. I call her a “Tabbyssinian”. She’s part brown tabby, that’s clear, but she also has the long, lean look, and some of the markings, of an Abyssinian. She has tabby stripes on her legs and tail, and one stripe across her chest. But instead of stripes or swirls in her tummy and sides, her coat is multi-hued in shadings ranging from orangey to buff to brown, with almost a “frosted” look. We don’t see this often, and it’s very striking. Rikki is medium-sized, and she was born in or near April of 2011, in our estimation.
Rikki is sister to our Izzy, and the two have a similar appearance. In fact, Rikki and Izzy were in foster care together at one point, though they do not need to be adopted together. Because of this, we think that Rikki will be OK around other cats, though she’s still quite new in her suite. Toward people, Rikki is gentle and good-natured, and she seems to get along with just about everyone. Rikki has no medical issues of which we’re aware.
With the great combination of looks and personality she has, we expect Rikki to find her “forever” home soon. Come in to meet our “Tabbyssinian” girl and you’ll understand why.
