Many cats, especially when they are scared, like being on people’s shoulders. They feel safe because they are higher and protected by the person.
Actually, I use that position regularly with cats that “refuse to cooperate”. They don’t have the choice, they have to cooperate, they always will check what’s happening around and that’s when I “get” my photos…
It’s not really known when the tabbies became a breed. Some people say that tabbies became a cat breed during the middle ages. Some other people say that tabbies became a cat breed in England during the 17th century.
