Awe! I didn't know that's what she was! We got her at the pound four years ago. It's my daughter's cat, Maggie.

We looked it up a while ago because we were curious to see how common a pattern it is. We learned that there are several patterns that tabby cats have and they can occur in both the black and white or the orange yellow colors. The bulls eye pattern is called that because they have a circle on their side that looks like a target. It can be just faint and broken up or very pronounced and clear. Homer is probably the best example of it that we have. It is a more uncommon pattern but not rare as it does show up sometimes. By the way, Homers story is written up in an instructable.
