Part 6 – Ginger Tabby
Part 6 in a series of faux black felt “paintings” of cat portrait’s. This one is styled as a classic Ginger or Orange colored Tabby. A Ginger tabby is one of the classic “Tom Cat” styles, that you can normally find prowling around late at night.
Orange Tabby’s tend to be portrayed as the ‘Cat among Cats’ in most cartoons and things, and are a common type to be seen along the streets in Japan. Not quite as popular (or lucky) as the Calico cat, they are still welcomed.
Part 5 – Siamese
Part 5 in a series of faux black felt “paintings” of cat portrait’s. This one is styled as an ‘Award Winning’ Siamese cat. Siamese come in various forms such as the Chocolate Point, the Seal point, the Lilac Point, or even Tonkinese, or Javanese cat.
Siamese are generally known for their dark paws, ears, deep blue eyes and faces with cream colored bodies. The show-room type cat originally had an odd feature of having crossed eyes, but that had been bred out of the breed. these cats are very sociable, and love to talk.
Part 4 – Calico
Part 4 in a series of faux black felt “paintings” of cat portrait’s. This one is styled as a popular cat in Japan, the Calico, or Tortise shell. Generally a good portion of these cat are actually female, but the odd percentage can be male once in a blue moon, so to speak. Calico cat’s are among one of my favorite types of cats.
I simply adore how perfectly white their fur can be, then have odd patches of black and brown/orange. Another variation of the Calico is the Tortoise Shell. They typically have more patches of black, with brown flecks. Sometimes they can be a Chimera! Cat’s that have one side of their face black, and the other brown–divided near perfectly down their face, are called chimera. (Like a mix of two). It’s such a fascinating marking.
Part 3 – Black Bombay
Part 3 in a series of faux black felt “paintings” of cat portrait’s. This one is styled as the Black Bombay cat.
These cats are known for their personalities! This is Kato, a real gentleman of a cat. Though he won’t fail to let you know that you’re bothering him. When we first got Kato, we didn’t know what to name him. We had adopted him from the shelter, and he seemed so skinny. After he came home, all he ever did was eat, and sleep so we were contemplating naming him “Bed and Breakfast”. XD;; Though, Kato is actually named from the “Green Lantern”. The Green Lantern had a 60′s TV show in a similar style to the old Batman TV show, and his sidekick was played by Bruce Lee. The character’s name was “Kato”.
Part 2 – Silver Mackerel Tabby
Part 2 in a series of faux black felt “paintings” of cat portrait’s. This one is styled as a generic house-cat, the Silver Mackerel Tabby. Characterized by their “M” shaped marking on their foreheads.
The Silver Mackerel Tabby are another common variation of house cat, but are generally more skinny than the aforementioned brown tabby. XD;; Sorry Salem, I love you, but you’re huge.
