Yes I also found the black variety to be not as friendly as the lighter grey ones. I am reminded of a beautiful grey tabby which I owned. She was a cute squint-eyed kitten who use to mean so much to me. She use to play fetch with crumpled newspaper balls, follow me wherever I went, she use to be my constant companion, and wake me up early in the mornings with her lovely purrs. Until one fateful day when she disappeared suddenly. I was so sad you would'nt believe it. I just couldn't forget Kitty for a very long time. It seemed unreal that my dear kitty was gone. She was five months old.

I've always had tabby's, sweet friends. My neighbor has one with a circular pattern on her sides and I was told a long time ago there is another name for that colored tabby. Does anyone know what it might be? I used to have one just like that and the vet's assistant told me, but it was years ago and I forget.

I have a Tabby, Roscoe... He does not have the M pattern on his forehead but more what looks like a spider with 8 legs. Does anyone else's tabby have a spider?

I have known tabby cats all my life, from the striped with the M in the forehead, to the calico and the all black with faint stripes. Tabbies are the best breed in the world, very friendly and sweet. I find the black variety are more offstandish, especially the females. Still, I would never want any other kind than a tabby, they are the purrfect pet.
