I believe that Zoe has perhaps the most outstanding cat coat pattern I have ever seen and I have seen tens of thousands.
I believe Zoe is a torbie which means tortoiseshell with a tabby pattern mixed in. You can see a faint “M” on the forehead.
I know the flashlight has lightened the face but the pattern on the face is extraordinary and the way the pattern goes around the mouth is amazing. It is like a beard.
It is as extraordinary as the famous Venus two-faced cat. Venus is a tortoiseshell and the genetics that create this pattern does create sharp lines between dark and lighter fur. Often the line is down the nose forming what is called a blaze.
Gizzy who lives with Elisa is similar to Zoe:
Below is Venus (insert in the main photo) and an Exotic SH with one of these extraordinary tortie or torbie sharp-lined cat coats:
Have you seen a cat face like Zoe’s this before?
