What does tortie love look like?

December 30th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

A tortoiseshell cat is a cat with both the red gene and the black gene, and they are called Tortie for short. Their fur is mottled in a mosaic of color,and the shapes and patterns are random. If a tortoiseshell cat has enough white on her, she is then called a Calico and her patches of color are bigger and more pronounced. Since the color gene for tortoiseshell resides on the X chromosome, only a very few male cats ever end up being torties — they are genetic anomalies, and so far, all have been sterile, so they are not “worth a fortune” But that is why torties are usually females.

It is wonderful luck to have a pair of cats who love each other, like these two clearly do. They were fostered by Kitty Harbor and were adopted by some very nice people, hopefully as a pair!
This painting is for sale for $125 and half the proceeds will go to Kitty Harbor. It measures 7.5″ x 11″.

Do you have cats who are friends with each other?

    I LOVE these cats and especially YOUR redition of them!!! My only cat is a stuffed one named Faux Pas. Maybe I should acquire another so she won’t be lonesome. My grandkids play with her, dressing her up in dolly clothes. We all love this cat, especially because she needs so little care. I’m kind of ‘done’ with live animals right now.
