Does your heart belong to a terrific tabby tiger cat? Wikipedia defines a tabby as "any cat that has a distinctive coat that features stripes, dots, lines or swirling patterns, usually together with a mark resembling an 'M' on its forehead." Tabby does not refer to a specific breed; it is a pattern that comes with many color variations.

One of those color variations involves shades of gray and is referred to as "blue" in the cat lovers world.
A “blue tabby” has gray stripes on a grayish or buff ground color. The gray stripes may be a dark slate gray, or a lighter blue-gray. (Information via http://www.fanciers.com/other-faqs/colors.html)
