This week's theme is patterns, and, luckily, I had some kittens in the studio this past Sunday, which got me to thinking about a very specific pattern--Tuxedo Cats. I did some research on tux kitties and here is what I found.
If you think in terms of the long-running Broadway hit, Cats, the "Jellicle cat" (Mr. Mistoffelees) is a Tuxedo cat extraordinaire! When I was growing up, Felix the Cat, was a prime example of a tuxedoed kitty.
In the group of four kittens that visited the studio, it was hard to tell them apart. Their markings were significantly close to each other. Two actually had the black under their chins, and two had white chins. In the end, if you look at the white divider mask line, it gives you a little hint that a different kitten is now appearing.
And if you are interested, they are up for adoption. GAH!
I realized that I had done some photos in the past for a friend who also has a few tuxedo kitties. In order to show you a pattern with a full mask, I dug deep into my archives and found this photo below.
