Are orange tabby cats considered a breed?

Is tabby a breed, a color, or some other classification?


Answer by  winkie (95)

Orange tabby cats are not a breed: orange is a coat color, while tabby is a coat patter. There are actually four tabby coats: mackerel, striped, ticked and classic. Tabby cats can occur in any breed.
