Except from CFA the GCCF doesn't approve ticked tabbies. Ticked tabby is just as chocolate, lilac and colorpoint is thought to be a sign of outcrossing with other breeds which wouldn't be acceptable for a "natural breed".Originally Posted by NorthernGlow
You can also see ticked tabbies in lots of other breeds (like BSHs of course).
Where is ticked tabby not approved for MCOs? It's approved in FifÃ[emoji]169[/emoji] and TICA, also the Maine Coon Breeders & Fanciers Association lists it as an approved color. CFA propably doesn't approve it as they seem to have very strict color list (atleast for BSHs..)?
