We had a cat with identical markings as Tardar Sauce…
The mom was black and white, and the dad was a Red Point Siamese.
The combination of those two gaves us 2 snowshoe looking kittens, and 2 turkish van looking kittens.
So, the parents’ pattern type doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with the kittens’ patterns if they’re mixed breeds.
He looks so big though!
And I thought MY cat was huge! wow!
Snowshoes were actually developed by cross breeding siamese kitties with “tuxedo” kitties. I have one (a Snowshoe) and there are times when I can also see distinct tabby markings on his dark markings so I would guess that you have some delightful recessive gene kitties and I am glad that you are such a loving mom… And I’ll tell you what, little Tardar Sauce has brought a lot of giggles into our house!! We especially loved “grump on a stump”.
Maury Povich says: “The results are in……You are NOT the father!!!” (Cue funky music and this cat starting to dance a funky dance.) Seriously though – this cat, the mother, and Tardar are beautiful and it’s good to know they’re in a loving home. Rock on!
Starting to see where the strange mixer of genes came from. Dad has a smaller rounder face where as mum has big eyes and ears…but if Pokey’s dad is someone different, I got nothin :p
For Tardar Sauce to have the markings that she does it’s unlikely that the tabby (handsome though he is)is her dad. I think her mother may have had more than one gentleman caller.
Tard, do you know that your look is copmared to the look of German politicians ;-)? That’s insulting as you’re such a cute cat!
He’s beautiful! Is he neutered now? Does he belong to you or just a stray? His face reminds me of a bobcat and he looks big. I have two big boys myself. Are these Pokey’s parents too?
He belongs to a neighbor; but is always outside.
He looks like a big boy.
You should make use of an apostrophe. “Grumpy Cat’s” father and mother.
That said, your cats are adorable.
Are you from Reddit?
I love this cat!!!! Pics of Tard make my day
Such a handsome boy!!
