Call Me Mackerel


Mommy and Daddy heard someone call Ollie a "mackerel" recently and they'd never heard this before. Some quick googling reveals that tabby coloration occurs when cats are allowed to breed randomly. And, that mackerel coloration is most likely the common wild phenotype of the domestic cat. Interesting, huh?

Ollie, you are cute. I like your multi-colored toes, too.

Mackerel? That's a fish! Bonnie's a fish! So are you a catfish? Oh oh! We had catfish fur dinner.
